    Jim Leyland?

    If Jim Leyland were to leave the Tigers would you consider him for manager of the Red Sox?

    Yes.  I continue to find it interesting to think that we fired the most successful manager in RS history, and now we're waiting for someone else's disappointment to be fired.

    But outside of that, Leyland has had a fair amount of success, and I don't hold him accountable for Detroit this year.  They were just one more in a succession of teams that think defense doesn't count.

    Sox need somebody that can do what Showwalter did in Baltimore.  He has the O's believing in themselves.  Rays have the same type of manager.  Even Girardi is a good manager.  You don't hear stuff coming out of those cities like the Sox have had for the last 5 years.

    Good manager, but a little old.

    Tony Pena NYY bench coach for Manager and let him pick all of his own coaches.

    Why would leyland leave a much better situation in detroit to take over this mess of a sox team?I doubt he'd be interested in any way,shape or form.

    Probably wishful thinking but would be a super choice.

    For those of you thinking this is far fetched. Sports Illustrated wrote yesterday he could be on the Hot Seat if the Tigers fail to make the playoffs, that it may be his time to go, and Leyland says he agrees that this could be his final year with the Tigers.

    I like Tony Pena too.  He did an excellent job at Kansas City.

    Pena-former Sox catcher; good choice. Knows the history, especially recent.

    I think I would be inclined to stay with my suggestion the last two weeks: the PawSox coaching staff. Many reasons--management knows the group and vice versa.

    They have spent ST with every player, they have brought those on rehab assignments back to playing form, they have a good sense of the talent in the minor league system. They have been successful.

    If they win the Governor's Cup or if they lose this series with the  Charlotte White Sox affiliate--I will feel the same way---give them a chance--what do we have to lose. 

    Everyone needs a chance. The Manager and assstants get  one year contracts and a team option.
