We win 117 games and our first title since WWI if Frank is made manager.

Book it!

Uhhhhhhhhhhhh? I don't think I want to see Frank be a 3rd base coach let alone manage.

I always thought Frank would become a hitting instructor if he went into coaching. He doesn't know enough about the other aspects of the game to be a manager.

i would be opposed to him being a hitting instructor. his swing is too unorthodox

amen. how many non-pitchers are 6'-6" and a former tight end? the bat looks like a pencil in his hands. if we can somehow regain his early-days form--he would be good at teaching kids plate discipline. his eye was absolutely incredible back in the day.

how about making him bench coach, he seems to enjoy his time on the bench.

I'd just like him to hit, just see if he can MANAGE that!
