I think it’s pretty obvious it won’t be an inexperienced or young guy.

I assume it’s going to be someone you’ve heard of like Maddon or Girardi.

Also, I promise that whoever they hire will do many of the same things you guys complained about with Scioscia and Ausmus. 

No Jeff, this time it will be different!

Maddon is going to want a five year deal. Do we really want to hire the oldest manager in baseball ⚾️ He’ll be 66 years old in February and he won’t come cheap.

I prefer a much younger manager. I’d prefer Girardi over Maddon as a example.

Given the decisiveness and timing of the firing it absolutely has to be a big name, high profile replacement. Those two( Maddon and Girardi) are the most obvious.

In house replacements, promotions of inexperienced coaches and journeyman managers aren't as time sensitive hires as those two. Who knows? Maybe the longer you wait, the more competition there will be. 

Interestingly, Maddon has the inbuilt 'home town/residence' factor with an Angel job. Perhaps at his age with this his likely last managerial job that plays into the equation.

I think Ausmus would have stayed as care-taker next year IF Maddon was staying in Chicago.

I think the Cubs parting ways with Maddon may have cut short the 'care-taker' managerial era and with Maddon coming in, the Halos are more likely to open Arte's wallet for a front of the rotation ace : Cole, Strasberg, Bumgarner etc. next tier (Halos always seen to sign the 'next' tier guys - Wainwright).

Maybe these guys want to play for an experienced and successful manager, and maybe that’s why there’s so much interest in Maddon. If that’s what it takes to get someone lime Cole in Anaheim, then hire Maddon.
