Apparently, Epstein and his assistant, GM Jed Hoyer, just want an obliging stat guy who will let them manage the team from above with their computers.
According to numerous reports, the three finalists for the job now are Padres bench coach Rich Renteria, who has no managerial experience
On the other hand, Braves lefty-hitting catcher Brian McCann is a top target
Who do you think of? None stick out to me.
I have no problem with someone like renteria. I will wait for the cubs to have actual good players before I am disappointed with a manager.
When I originally read #10, I mentally put the pause in the wrong place and thought it included the phrase, "a computer Terry Francona", which entertained me for a bit.
I think you're being harsh, #2. I don't think the implication was "no managerial experience" = "terrible manager".
