15 posts in this topic

Brandon Hyde, the Chicago Cubs bench coach, is among the candidates to be interviewed for the Angels’ managerial job, according to multiple sources.

Hyde, a product of Long Beach State, has been with the Cubs since 2014, under both Rick Renteria and Joe Maddon. This season was his first as bench coach. Hyde also reportedly interviewed for the opening with the Texas Rangers this week.

The Angels are planning interviews with at least 10 candidates for the job. The only two confirmed candidates are Joe Espada, the Houston Astros bench coach, and Hyde.

Internal candidates Brad Ausmus, Eric Chavez, Dino Ebel and Josh Paul are also believed to be on the list.

Sure seems like a lot of candidates with zero MLB managing experience. Is that the plan?

Who has MLB experience and is available, that you'd want?

Doesnt matter what I want. Just a comment about the lack of experience in these candidates, and wondering if that is intentional. 

I've always like Showalter, but I have no idea if he is a good fit for THIS front office or THIS team, however it is constituted before 2019. But he is a solid strategy guy who seemed well-liked by the Oriole players.

We've had some recent examples of managers with no MLB experience who, according to the reports I've read, struggled as managers. Ausmus was one of them. Dave Martinez. Gabe Kapler. Scott Servais. Dont know how true all that is.
