Raul Ibanez is one of the people being considered for the Rays manager job

Two years ago Jason Giambi was considered for the Rockies manager job even though he was — and still is — an active player. Now another active player is on the list of candidates for the Rays job:

Raul Ibanez played 90 games between the Angels and the Royals last year. Unfortunately for him, it appeared a though his age finally caught up with him. He traveled with the Royals through the playoffs but was not on the roster.

He has been talked about possibly being a manager one day. Or a broadcaster. Last week it was reported that the Yankees were considering him for a coaching job. Any way you slice it, the next phase of his career is about to begin.

Maybe as the Rays manager.
