I figured it would be good to start a forum on the managerial changes and new hires.


As we all know, the Tigers will replace Brad Ausmus with Ron Gardenhire. There's a lot of discussion about that here


The Mets will hire Cleveland pitching coach Mickey Calloway as their new manager. 


The rumors are that Astros coach Alex Cora will be the next manager of the Red Sox.


The Nationals let Dusty Baker go, so that managerial position is still open.

I endorse both the Cora and Calloway decisions, with my very limited knowledge. The Gardenhire one is meh, but won't kill the Tigers one way or the other, probably.

I remain hopeful on Buxton and Sano.....but I'd not bet the franchise on them.

As long as Gardy does not get to pick his pitching coach(hope, hope it is Rick Anderson).
