Marty Lurie Talks San Francisco Giants Baseball

And The Next Manager Of Your Oakland Athletics Is€

We’ll find out as early as tomorrow. Each candidate has marched into Beane’s office, pulled out their resume, and stated their case.

This gut-wrenching reality competition began with seven, with three having been or will be hired by other clubs, and now the final four, Bob Geren, Bob Geren, Bob Geren, and Bob Geren, wait patiently, hoping for that knee-buckling call from Mr. Moneyball.

Send your text vote, friends.

With all due respect for the other qualified candidates, Jamie Quirk, Orel Hershiser, and Trey Hillman, apparently they have a shot, too.

But interviewing for the managerial spot in Oakland negates years of conventional wisdom. Perhaps it’s not what trove of leadership skills you can bring, but your selfless ability not to botch a proven system already in place, that impresses Beane.

Beane overlooked established and available skippers such as Dusty Baker, Lou Piniella, and Buck Showalter, because they’re too drenched with their own philosophies, and would take too long to deprogram.

Hell, Beane didn’t grant his first base coach, Rene Lacheman, who has plenty of managerial experience, an interview.

But the A’s new manager will not arrive with selfish ambitions tucked in his heart, rather a transparent, teachable, and flexible spirit, ready for Beane to mold.

He must be a manager after Beane’s heart.
