2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Give me one prediction for every manager opening.
(manny99 from Do you care?)
Completely guessing on all of these, with some guesses being more educated than others, but...
Rangers: Tim Bogar keeps the job
Astros: A.J. Hinch
Diamondbacks: Jose Oquendo
Twins: someone internal, like Paul Molitor (Daniel Rathman)
2014-09-29 14:00:00 (link to chat)Hey, Diamondbacks fan here. Any idea who might our new manager be?
(Mike from Phoenix)
Said this earlier, can't get past the feeling that the La Russa connection will pave the way for Jose Oquendo. (Daniel Rathman)
2014-05-28 14:15:00 (link to chat)Why hasn't someone hired Jose Oquendo away from the Cardinals yet?
(Michael from STL)
I don't know. Maybe he likes it so much in St. Louis that his demands are always higher than other quality managerial candidates'. Maybe he hasn't interviewed well. Maybe he just hasn't happened to say what the people who were thinking of hiring him were hoping to hear. Would be nice to see him get a shot, since we've been hearing that he deserves one for quite some time. (Ben Lindbergh)
2011-12-20 13:00:00 (link to chat)Best baseball-themed Christmas present you've ever got?
(Toby from Target)
Hmm. I'm going to whiff on this, probably. It's hard to remember former gifts on demand. A family friend once gave me a piece of paper that Juan Marichal had signed. Just a scrap, about as big as my pinkie, because that was all the person had with him at the time. I really like that present because it was so worthless, materially speaking. When I was a kid collecting baseball cards, memorabilia became very money-based, like I had this deluded sense that I was investing and that I was somehow wealthy because I got a $7 John Smoltz rookie card in a pack. Baseball-card collecting was fun, but it was a particular sort of laborious fun. That Juan Marichal scrap was just 100 percent unsellable, though, so I never had to worry about it the way I worried about my cards, or about other memorabilia I had. I could just look at it.

One year, I got in trouble and my parents took away all my baseball cards as punishment. I managed to smuggle one card free (Jose Oquendo, 1988 Topps), but the rest were taken and hidden. For Christmas, they gave me my cards back. That was amazing at the time, but now that I think about heyyyyyyyy that present sort of sucks.

For my birthday this year, I got this shirt. I like it: http://www.tauntr.com/content/just-fire-it-through-internet-shirt

What about everybody else? Lay 'em on me. (Sam Miller)
2011-11-16 13:30:00 (link to chat)Same leadoff Q as for Derek yesterday: what's your take on the Matheny managerial signing? (Incidentally, are we ever going to get a full-blown Transaction Analysis on this one? I'm really surprised not to have seen that. Or did I miss it?)
(Bill from New Mexico)
Bill, thanks for asking--R.J. has been doing the bulk of the TA stuff as I try to clear the last book-related work off my plate, and I haven't been able to get to Matheny. I'm not sure how much you're missing, though. I wrote a long TA about Robin Ventura after he was hired, and while I hope it was an enjoyable read, I don't know if I or anyone else came away from it with a much firmer handle on how Ventura is actually going to manage and impact his new team. There's just no in-game record to go on. It does seem curious that they went with an in-house guy who wasn't Jose Oquendo, but Matheny sounds like a capable choice, to the extent that we can tell. Hell, every game on TV he played in during the second half of his career involved some broadcaster saying, "This guy is going to be a manager someday," so at the very least, it's nice to see all that blather amount to something. (Ben Lindbergh)
2010-11-16 13:00:00 (link to chat)Oh, come on, go out on a limb and predict SOME kind of surprise. We won't hold it against you if you're wrong. Really. Trust me. For starters, will there be anything yet on the next Mets manager? (If it's Jose Oquendo, who all jumps ship from the Cardinals?)
(BillJ from New Mexico)
I don't have any inside info on the Mets' managerial search, but I'd expect there to be some news by then, since teams prefer not to leave leadership questions unresolved into the heart of winter. Fine, you want a surprise? While holding court in the lobby of the Swan and Dolphin Resort, Scott Boras will demand less money for a client. You heard it here first. (Ben Lindbergh)
