    I know good things come to those who wait but come on. Now is not the time to be messing aroung.  some kind of plan should be in place prior to the winter meetings  and I would think that the manager should have some knowledge of the inter workings of that  plan.//// well see you next week?

    The manager works with the players that he has. The FO decides what the roster is. Ownership decides on the FO and amount to spend. Much of what goes on is not spoon fed to the fans and that is the way that it should be.

    Maybe LL is going to introduce a new MLB concept. Field a team with no Manager. Just let this group of players manage themselves. I'm certain Beckett, Varitek, Lackey (when he comes back) would provide tremendous leadership.

    Re: "LET ME BE CLEAR", LIKE THE "BIG O", DECISIONS ARE SLOW COMING.......

    I asked this before...................
    What is the rush to get a manager on board?
    There is nothing on the immediate schedule that requires having a manager.
    Anything on the schedule has been done by scouts/player development and the FO.
    There is nothing that a new manager can add to the FA signings. Please do not say get ready for ST if he can not do that from Dec to Feb than an extra few weeks are not going to help. And if he can't I don't want him.

    The only answer I got was that the only thing that a new manager can add is a name that may or may not help sign a FA.

    Upcoming events for all teams:

    Dec. 1, 2011 Last day to request outright waivers to assign player prior to Rule 5 Draft
    Dec. 5, 2011 5 p.m. ET is last time to outright a player prior to the Rule 5 Draft

    Dec. 7, 2011 Last date for player who declared free agency to accept an arbitration offer from former club. Deadline is midnight ET

    Dec. 5-8, 2011 Baseball Winter Meetings, Dallas

    Dec. 8, 2011 Major League Rule 5 Draft, Dallas

    Dec. 12, 2011 Last date to tender contracts is midnight ET  
    Jan. 9, 2012 Baseball Hall of Fame inductee class of 2012 announced
    February TBD Pitchers and catchers report

    Like Zac and Jim said, there's no hurry on this.

    We need to decide on the DH, RF, two SPs, maybe a bench player, and a couple of BP arms.

    If we hired someone that was currently managing, maybe you'd ask about prospective players.  Maybe a Tito could opine about Cuddyer or someone like that, how they played, their attitude, their mental toughness.  Valentine and Lamont haven't been MLB managers since most of the players in BB started playing.  Lamont has at least seen them.  Valentine hasn't even been in the MLB since most of the league started playing.

    Pike, I will tell you what Holmes once told Watson after he snared The Great Detective with one of his quips: "Watson, you are developing a pawky brand of humor against which I must learn to guard myself."
