Interesting. Can't say I would be against it.
My biggest concern with any manager is what they do with Bosio and McKay. They have done excellent jobs thus far and I would like to keep them
If Gammons said it, it won't happen.
He hasn't been right since the 90's.
LOL! So true about Gammons. Ausmus is intreguing canidate and always had the leadership type qualities when he played.
"what they do with Bosio and McKay. "
I thought about that as well. Their contributions to this team are often overlooked. What usually happens tho is new manager, new blood.
Not a big fan of Gardenhire either for some reason. I see him as a guy that could not get the Twins far in the playoffs.
Cubs Den has a story on this.
Ausmus seems a reasonably choice, but I think I'd rather have Girardi. Girardi has everything Ausmus has, plus a successful track record as an MLB manager in two vastly different cities/situations.
Is Ausmus coaching any where? Epstein and Hoyer wouldn't hire anyone without major league coaching experience the first time through. As far as I know, Ausmus hasn't been a coach any where in the major leagues, has he? I'm not sure why the criteria would change this time around, should Epstein/Hoyer be looking for a manager.
All that aside, I do agree, I think Ausmus would make a great manager some day. Catchers do tend to make good managers.
