There is a lot of horses on the managing carousel of Major League Baseball. On top of that there might be some new openings and open candidates after the results of some of these playoff series. It is highly speculated that Dodgers manager Don Mattingly will be dismissed after a third straight early playoff exit despite all the talent and payroll in the world. Will the Yankees stick with Joe Girardi another year as well?
So, who do you think the new Padres manager should be? The list for A.J. Preller seems to be growing in diversity everyday, from candidates who have never coached or managed in the big leagues, to long-time coaches looking for their first shot, to former players and even a former player turned front office executive in Scott Servais.
