I was reading something in the Sun-Times last week about Joey Cora being mentioned as a potential new manager for the Mariners. Is there any basis for this, or are our wonderful papers once again making things up?

I know he was a part of the '95 Seattle team but honestly, I think Seattle needs to try and get someone in as manager that has experience handling what has the potential of being a fairly young team in terms of experience. Yes, I know there are still going to be veterns on the team, but I see there being quite a youth movement on the team as well.

Didn't Joey interview in Washington or Pittsburgh the last few years? Seems the last few offseasons his name is mentioned next to managerial vacancies.

Cora's not even mentioned in this story from ESPN. Riggleman and Yost seem to the the two candidates.

I strongly support the Mariners' hiring of Joey Cora.

This is just my opinion, but I'm on the boat where I could really care less if he remains our bench coach or asst manager or whatever he is, or leaves for another gig. He seems more of a "yes" man to Ozzie than someone who actually brings a lot of knowledge and/or skill to his position.

And he'd likely be replaced by another yes-man, so it probably wouldn't make much difference.
I would like to see a serious coach - a teacher - added to this staff.

Agreed, and agreed.
