Managerbation

Post by Coeurd’Alene J » Sat Oct 17, 2020 9:45 pm

There is probably a zero chance that we hire a new Manager to lead these young guys into the future. I would argue that there’s no more important moment in Mariners history where we could use a leader and a proven winner to manage the next 5 years. With that in mind take a look at the list of candidates......

Who would you hire

Billy McMillon

Jason Varitek

Joey Cora

Mark Kotsay

James Rowson

Matt Quatraro

George Lombard

AJ Hinch

Andy Green


I lean toward Rowson as a guy that could shape our young lineup..... Here is a small window into his abilities........
I always say, we [coaches] create the culture, but the players on this team will create their identity,” Rowson said. “And their identity will be about them. Every team has its own identity.”

Miami’s “identity” since 2018, unfortunately, has hardly had any desirable traits. The Fish finished in the bottom-six in the league in runs per game and batting average during both seasons. They have also ranked dead last in home runs over that span.


FanGraphs
But the new identity will be created by the players themselves, Rowson said. This includes giving each individual hitter their own attack philosophy at the plate. Rowson has also told his players to not be afraid of jumping on the first pitch if they believe that’s their best pitch to hit.

“A lot of it is our mentality,” Rowson said. “What is our game plan? What is our approach? What are we trying to do? I think a lot of it has to do with getting our position players to go up to the plate with a plan every time, and have an approach for the pitching we’re going to see.”
Any others?

For those who don’t think we stand a chance on Rowson....We drafted him and he played in our system

Check him out

Daren Brown should still be our manager as far as I'm concerned.

Probably my second favorite. We might have the worst manager to ever fill out a lineup in servix.....literally anyone would be an upgrade

The important thing to remember is that even the best of these guys might realistically be worth two or three more wins than Servais...although two or three more wins this year would have meant playoffs.
