Leave Dwight Evans alone.. Hoping Boston puts him on the list if/when Valentine is let go and John Farrell is not let go from Toronto.

Larry Bowa would be a great fit.

Still hoping Sandy Alomar Jr. gets a managerial job by next season. And preferably for my Indians =)

I hope Tony D gets the gig. It could be Superman and the team will still not be good next season and beyond.

Take Bobby Valentine from us and see if he can make that team any worse than it already is.

Astros should bring in a vodka retailer in as a co-sponsor on stadium naming rights, because it would be Screwdriver Field by the time Bowa blows his fuses about 15 games into the season.

Who would want this job is the question.
