    Mike Lowell

    Would love to see Mikey come back and manage our Sox. Other coaching picks would be:

    Bench: Alex Cora

    Pitching: Orel Hershiser

    Hitting: Sean Casey

    BP: Varitek

    One of my favorite Red Sox players ever. But he's never even managed his kid's Little League team as far as anyone knows.

    If you mean in a theoretical future after they'd all had some experience in such jobs...sure, I agree they all seem like solid, bright guys that could excel as managers/coaches in Teddy Ballgames' MFL.


    Today?


    Would you hire 5 of this year's Harvard business school grads to run the SS Minnow?  I wouldn't.....and that was the main cause of the legendary shipwreck.....

    I once met Mike Lowell in Quincy market.  I yelled out, "Oh my God, it's Mike Lowell!!!"

    Thanks to my big mouth, Lowell got busy signing autographs.   LOL

    Great idea. Bring in a guy who's never managed at any level. A.L.  fans support this idea....

    The sox are already considering this with Brad Ausmus.

    Based on your list, why not hire Jenny Dell. She has as much coaching experience as Lowell, Hershiser, Casey.

    This coming from the guy who started the thread that a better pitching coach would have solved the Red Sox problems.

    Instead of criticizing my choices, how about providing your suggestions?

    I do agree that the new manager has to have some coaching experience.  Although, I do believe that many former players have the potential to be good coaches.

    Ausmus managed in Israel.

    Mike Matheny in St.Louis walked into a situation where he was replacing a Hall of Fame manager, inheriting a team trying to repeat (never easy), while losing one of the best players in recent history to free agency. He seems to be doing OK.

    Re: Mike Lowell

    aside from Lowell not having interest, I always thought him to be a stand up guy, a good guy. Perhaps a leader in the club house? I dont ever think in all the time Lowell was here, that I ever thought he would be a good manager? Too quiet? Not fiery enough? I also thought he didnt handle his last season here well, putting himself ahead of the team.

    If he wants to get back into the game, I agree he needs to start in the minor leagues to show his capabilities

    lol @ people killing OP for choosing manager with zero experience.  enough recent history to show experience dont mean squat.

    take a shot and then offer no suggestions of managers to hire "with experience".

    should we dig up billy martin?

    let me guess...Larussa or Torre?  hahahahaha

    I tend to lean towards catchers for managers...So Pena or Ausmus would be my 2 choices. I really dont care to get Farrell back.

    Re: Mike Lowell

    the thing about Farrell is he has been here before and knows what he is up against with regards to the players, front office, fan/media scrutiny. I have the idea that if this team is going to compete next year, or even if they are going to take 2-3 years, the success will be in getting the pitching staff straightened out, and developing the young arms.

    Pena, Ausmus, Farrell...I think Farrell is best equipped to handle all of the above. To point out the mistakes made in Toronto, imo Farrell is smart enough to take these mistakes and improve from them.

    Pena had one good year in KC, and struggled every other year until he ran into some personal problems. Its not like he has been there and done that before. Ausmus could be great, but not here. Too much pressure, too many expectations.

    Farrell is the guy. SOx are blowing smoke to get the asking price down
