The Diamondbacks announce their managerial candidates


Kirk Gibson got the axe last week and now the Diamondbacks have announced their official list — thus far — of potential replacements:

I think Sandy Alomar has been on everyone’s list for a couple of years now, but never seems to make the short list. Phil Nevin was considered by the Astros and, as a Dbacks minor league manager, could make some amount of sense. Jim Tracy is proof positive that if you have friends in the game and are considered a nice guy, you’ll never be out of work long.

No one here seems inspiring. But maybe after a couple years of Kirk Gibson, they’re looking for someone a tad more mellow.
