Here is a discussion question for you. Assuming the Cubs decide to not bring back Dusty Baker for next year. If you are Jim Hendry, and you have three people interested in the job, which of the three do you choose?
Joe Girardi – Has done a great job with kids, but we’ve not seen what he can do with veterans on his roster. Also, lacks managing experience, especially in a big market like Chicago.
Bob Brenly – Likes to build with the farm, and has a ring. Some say he lacks good manager intelligence though.
Lou Pinella – Seems to have a reputation built on hype. He failed in Tampa and many were glad to see him go.
If those are your only three choices, who do you hire, and why?
