    Jim Leyland. Make him an offer he can't refuse.

    Re: Who are your top 3 manager choices?

    1. Ozzie Guillen

    2. Jason Varitek

    3.  Manny Ramirez

     

    JUST KIDDING....

     

    1.  Joe Torre...He is exactly what this team needs; a winner with class and knows how to run a clubhouse without all the distractions.

    2.  Arnie Beyeler...he's shown he can deal with constant changes and still win, and it will basically be the PawSox in Beantowne next season, anyway.

    3.  Sandy Alomar, Jr....They say Lamont was the second choice to Bobby V., but I remember Alomar as being a strong contender last off-season, and his credibility and heritage would serve him well with this team I should think.

    Torre's a brilliant baseball mind. But he's also 72.

    And obviously none of you watched him manage the Dodgers in his final seasons.

    Pop Fisher.

    But seriously ... I think Tony Pena would be a good pick. Not saying he'll immediately make the Sox a World Series contender, but I believe he would be a good fit.

    Do you really think Torres would like to manage the Red Sox and go against the Jeter's team.  If Jeter retires today, then I would think that Torres would take the job.  Of course, he hate A-Rod.

    I think Arnie Beyeler, Farrell and Tony Pena would be my top three choices.

    Former Red Sox players such as Lowell and Mueller could be a manager, but need more experience.  Like Giradi managed Florida before coming to NYY.

    It's Torre, not Torres.  Nobody wants Rusty Torres to be manager in Boston next year. 

    I do not see Joe Torre worrying about whether he would have to manage against Jeter or not.  I would expect his decision to based on many other, more important things.  If he could convince Jim Kaat to come in and be the pitching coach, the Sox could transform themselves in much less time than if they go with a newbie, such as Alomar, Wallach, Martinez, etc.

    As for Farrell, I just don't get the love.  I said months ago that Toronto was playing a horrible brand of baseball.  Omar Visquel, quite independently of course, has said the same thing and he blames a lack of communication of expectations and a lack of training in fundamentals as issues.  Sound familiar?  After all, where did Farrell learn his management style?

    He learned them in Boston, a team known for its lack of discipline and focus on fundamentals for years.  It worked for them when they had superstars at almost every position.  It will not work with the current roster, and Farrell's tenure in Toronto is proof positive of that, IMO.

    Tracy was voted the 2009 (I think) NL Manager of the year.  How is he underrated?  I'd take Lamont over Tracy, but then I would take many others over Lamont, so Tracy would be rather low on my list.

    Nice little article out of Cleveland on Tito/Alomar and be sure to read the "comments" from the fans at the end of it. It seems they all are upset with the GM and President of the team.

    Ditto. But I like to move B. Ausmus to top of list. Lets go outside the box like Cards and White Sox did last offseason. Worked out pretty well for both. Ausmus well respected, and a catcher whats not to like. But better get someone in fast, or risk losing Magaden/Tuck/etc Francona's going to be looking at RS coaches if not already. Hale/Farrell would probably like to retain a couple of these guys on staff, Ausmus would probably bring in his own.
