Default Sox should hire Dave Martinez

He needs to be our manager going into next season. I believe he is the next great mgr.

He was supposed to be a hot managerial commodity after the '11 season. If so, how come he hasn't been hired by someone else by now? Besides, I highly doubt Robin is going anywhere.

If you don't like Robin's demeanor, you will hate Dave Martinez. Robin is like Ozzie compared to him.

I'm thinking that there must be something not generally known to the public about Martinez that has prevented him from getting a manager's position. I can't blame Sox management if that is in fact the case.

Whomever they hire, he *must* have played for the Sox. That is apparently a major qualification to coach here.

Next manager: Mike LaValliere! Who better to manage players that need a kick in the rear other than a guy named Spanky?

Well, Dave Martinez fits that bill.

Ron Hassey. Didn't the team like him so much, they traded for him 2-3 times in the '80's?

I've always had those suspicions myself.

I don't put ANY stock in the "why didn't somebody hire him sooner" argument after what Thibs has done with the Bulls.

I was about to post the same. Like Martinez, Thibs had a great rep around the league and was a hot coaching candidate. Like Martinez, no one hired him when he first threw his hat in the ring (the Bulls, in their infinite wisdom, wanted both VDN and Collins ahead of Thibs).

I don't think Martinez will ever be as good a manager as Thibs is a coach, but there are some interesting parallels there.

Maybe Martinez will have Sale throw 150 pitches a game and play all the regular starting lineup 160 games too.

All joking aside, whenever AJ is ready to manage hire him. He would be a great manager IMO.

From the wires:

CBS Sports' Danny Knobler reports that Ryne Sandberg will replace Charlie Manuel as the Phillies' manager.

It's the logical move, as Sandberg managed the Phillies' Triple-A affiliate from 2011-12 before taking over as the third base coach for the big league club this season.


Now this is how you hire a manager - seasoned, progressed through the system. Not by picking a name out of a hat of fan favorites who never coached.
