Manager -- Bill Mueller: I understand that John Farrell is the apple of everybody’s eye, but the former Red Sox third baseman, and current special assistant to the GM for the Dodgers, presents an interesting option. Mueller’s quiet wit could either get him eaten alive in Boston, or be just the right approach to managing here. I lean toward the latter. Of course, any manager is going to have to deal with questions about warming the seat for Jason Varitek, which is going to be unfair to whomever they bring in. Mueller seems like a guy who might shrug them off.
