I can see Babcock wanting to move on to a Pat Quinn type of situation where he can be coach/GM. He seems to be getting really sick of having to try and coach up a roster without having any real control over who's on it.

I can't see him giving up coaching though. New challenge, yes. GM, maybe. But still coaching.
