I've been away for awhile, but what about steve stone? Does he not want to manage or something? I think he'd be a great manager, let alone a great fit for our highly mismanaged pitchers. Any thoughts???

Stone's staying in the Cubs' booth.

I take Ozzie Guillen, but not because I want him to be named manager.

He's trying to buy the Expos and move them to Las Vegas.

Ricardo Montalban. (He's my Pick To Croak, and he sure as hell isn't leaving us anytime soon. :D: )

Ricardo Montalban? I will always remember that man for his performance in Star Trek II: The Wrath of Khan.

okay, darth vader was a nice touch. BUT, and to re-hash an earlier debate...what about Fisk?

If they announce Fisk or LaRussa as Jerry's replacement I will have to consider finding a new baseball team.

Personally, I'm holding out hope that Torre is done in NYC.

I can see that even if they win it all. Torre is plenty ticked at George from what I have read and could leave Steinbrennar holding the bag for chasing him out of town while being free to write his own ticket anywhere he wants to.

Maybe the Mets would even come calling just to stick it to their cross town rivals. In fact that is what I expect.

I don't want LaRussa, I don't want Fisk, and I don't want Guillen.

The guy who I think would be perfect for this team is Buck Showalter, and the Sox could have had him if they showed Manuel the door after last season.

Of the current available candidates, I have not been inspired by any of them. I think Willie Randolph is an interesting option, but I don't know enough about him.

I was listening to the Yanks radio broadcast during one of the games in the last series with the White Sox (Wells vs. Colon) and one of the announcers was ripping (while reading verbatim) an article written in one of the Chicago Suburban papers about how Torre isn't happy, etc., and basically tearing the guy apart. Maybe the announcer was just trying to be a homer, but he started going of about how this guy obviously "hasn't talked to Joe lately" and that "Joe isn't going anywhere". Later in the broadcast he made a few mentions of sitting in Torre's office and talking with him, etc., so I'm assuming he's got a bit of an insider's POV. That being said, who knows. Steinbrenner is an emotional guy and if the Yanks don't go all the way, Torre might not get the option of staying in NY.

Wally Backman, duh. He's a champion and he'll show the boys what it takes to be a champion.
