Nice piece on the Sox.

The stadium issue in St. Pete has been years in the making. Tropicana was a spec stadium built for either the Giants, Mariners or White Sox.

Lakeland 'could' work as it is 40 miles from both Tampa and Orlando

MLB told St Pete in 1988 DON'T build it in South St Pete, it won't work. Had they built it a few miles north near the dog track it would have been better. Tampa people however will not cross that bridge. The Magic have 3,000 season ticket holders from Tampa who think 80 miles on I-4 is no big deal but will not travel 25 miles to St Pete.

Sure, why not? Jerry Manual got a 2nd chance...

Exactly. It's hard to believe that he's gone eight years without a managerial job. He's due. There will be two definite openings in Atlanta and Toronto after the season (with Cox and Gaston retiring) along with possible openings in Baltimore and Florida. I also wouldn't be surprised to see an opening in Milwaukee by the end of the year, either. Simply put, I think that he's more than worthy of taking one of those jobs. He's always been a pretty solid manager.

Dusty Baker seems to have bucked the trend but for a long time the Cubs were a place where managerial careers went to die.

Jim Riggleman's managing again, too, although it took him 9 years to recover from his stint with the Cubs.

I find it interesting that Baylor finds it necessary to be a teacher to the younger players. I wish someone else felt the same way.

I wonder if its possible if he could simultaneously manage the Twins, Tigers, Royals, and Indians?

Riggleman was worse IMO and has a job.
