LaRussa picked Bochy and Randolph to be on his All-Star coaching staff. Leyland picked Gardenhire and Washington.

One of these things is not like the others.....

I could see reasons for rewarding other managers with the All-Star game being: 1) they have had a long run of successful teams; 2) their team was in the playoffs last year; or 3) their team is doing well through the first half of the season.

So why pick Ron Washington, a rookie manager whose team is severely under-achieving?

In all fairness -- there probably should be:

4.) Wants to be picked.

I would think that a lot of managers would rather tend to other things than coach in the AS game.

5. Yost is a terrible manager.


You must have seen the posts on it. LaRussa must read BF.Net...

MLB probably gave Leyland a nudge re: diversity

Tony chose Ned in 2005, the last time he was manager. Perhaps Ned didn't want to do it again. He wants to be the manager next year. I doubt guys like Cox and Torre want to be coaches in the allstar game.

Ron Washington had to wait forever to get a managing job. It's not like there's any qualifications for being a coach in a stupid all-star game. Maybe he and Leyland are friends, who knows?

If Ned feels snubbed, he can just not pick Tony next year.Image

willie randolph is electing to have surgery on his right shoulder during the all-star break.

could ned yost become his replacement?

Hopefully, Eugene can use this offseason to work on his punctuation.

I wonder. Last time he was selected, Ned gushed about how much he learned from LaRussa in just those couple of days. Ned's team is pretty formidable now, I'm guessing that LaRussa figures he's helped Ned enough already.

In what way is that condescending? I can't think of one.


Welcome Fishy!
