So you're writing off the next few years like they did the late 70s?

Wasn't Geren pretty hated by the players in Oakland? I thought his job there was almost solely due to being a childhood friend of Beane's?

To be fair Terry was pretty hated in his earlier career too.

I think it was only Houston Street that didn't like him.

I'm expecting Chip Hale. I have a weird "like" of Manny Acta. I'd love to see them talk to A-Rod (a baseball savant beyond his on-field ability), Gabe Kapler and Fernando Perez (yes, well aware they likely would avoid outside the box types).

I found a Brian Fuentes (remember him?) story bashing his lack of communication, but less out there than I remembered.

I would agree on Hale. I'd throw Ventura up there. He just may be the right combination of big market experience, connection to the Mets, considered bright and personable enough and able to relate with players, and has managed already. Hale checks most of those boxes too. Geren prob fits this category also. Those look like the top 3 to me.

Of course, if Alderson is doing the choosing it's def possible he'll go with another old hand and that could be Gardy. Seems less likely they'd go with a rookie manager (McEwing etc.)

Not that it would happen anyway, but Pirates signed Clint Hurdle to an extension so that would take him off the board as a potential manager. Would not shock me if they reached for Pedro Lopez and brought him and Viola up in tandem as new Manager and Pitching coach.

I'd be pretty shocked if they went with a guy with zero MLB coaching experience.

16 years of Minor league managing is experience enough. He'd be a solid choice IMO

To be clear, I like Pedro Lopez a whole lot but my impression of this FO is they value "MLB experience". I'd have zero issue with going with Lopez, I just doubt they would.
