Astros should hire Mike Scioscia as new manager

Recommended Posts

Jokes aside, I don’t get why no teams have inquired with Sosh. He had a steady and largely successful run for 19 years at his first (and so far only) MLB managerial stop. I mean, Showalter and Gibbons? Gibbons has physically fought his own players (allegedly). Showalter would have an aneurysm over the three-batter rule.

I'm sure they've inquired.  I don't think teams are willing to pay as much for managers anymore and I'm sure MS would want a pretty hefty amount.

I just came to the realization that I have never used the word "goof" in a sentence

it's kind of like me never seeing The Sandlot.

I'm shocked that nobody has even given him an interview, not one with all of the openings this offseason, despite him hiring an agent to try and help get him a job. If he doesn't get an interview with the Astros, Red Sox, or Mets, it really seems like he's blackballed. Maybe the combination of not adjusting to sabermetrics and the 2015 powerplay with Dipoto has made him persona non grata.

or maybe he hasn't been interested in the openings that have been available so far.
