Disappointed to see Listach isn’t a candidate anymore… he was one of the few candidates who seemed lively and young enough to relate to a young, hip and smug team. Maybe he just couldn’t manage his way out of a paper bag.
Why the Brewers are considering Bob Melvin is beyond me. Look at his stats. He managed a Seattle team in ’03 that would’ve won 90 games with an arm tied behind their back, and outside of a flukey year with the Diamondbacks he hasn’t won garbage.
Remember that fluke year in ARZ? When everyone theorized that good back-end bullpens tend to outplay their Pythagorean records by keeping one-run leads better? Where has that theory been recently?
I’d really prefer a candidate that has youth and can relate to some of the younger guys like Braun & Weeks like Sveum and Randolph seem to do. Bobby V?
