Replacement candidates? Girardi? Lou?

In their infinite wisdom, the Cubs already snatched Lou up. Maybe Bochy?

It would seem like a good situation for him as far as location. Dont really know how urgent he is to leave or for the Padres to rid themselves of him.

Girardi would be great there.

The Padres gave Bochy permission to speak with other teams. Most had him linked to the Cubs, but that seems to be out the window now.

They should just hire the computer that wrote Moneyball :sarcasm:

Wouldn't surprise me if the A's just promoted from within.

Maybe they can look for a replacement and hire him back again like last year.

I think there is a good chance of that and I hope he is the choice.

I agree, Washington deserves a legitimate chance for a job. Before he becomes the new Willie Randolph (teams stop taking him seriously because he becomes the token minority candidate.)

Fredi Gonzalez was usually the token minority guy, but he's finally found a job now.

I think A's fans would revolt if that happened.

yeah but imagine how funny it would be as joe searched the oakland coliseum for the computer that wrote moneyball.

And Terry Francona still has a job.

And Terry Francona still has a job.Because he actually won the World Series. It took something special to comeback after being down 3 games to none against the Yankees.

yeah, but last time i checked, the Red Sox players have not come out and publicly bashed Francona like the players have Macha...that was a major reason he was fired, along with the fact that he's a horrible in game manager.

So far the A's are going to meet with Washington, Bob Geren the bench coach and other candidates are Larry Bowa, Bud Black and Orel Hershiser (according to the SF Chron at least)

Washington, Black or Hershiser would all be great in Oakland. I don't really know about Geren, but Bowa?

...not so much.
