No, thanks.:no: Aint enuff room for hees beeg head in the Pads' clubhouse.

Who's gonna overpay for Barroid's fat FA salary? Probably the G-nats.
Po Boch will have to deal with Barroids, methinks.:yes:

Now I'm thinkin they're gonna hire Dusty, because BR yesterday emphatically said that they must ALREADY KNOW who they are gonna hire. And I'm think why add Dusty NOW unless they are gonna hire him. He has the most experience and if peeps are whinin about having experience, its gonna be the Dustinator and his overactive toothpick. Ah, well...

he's a good manager
and signing him might give us a leg up on signing Aramis Ramirez as our 3B

I REALLY REALLY dont think Dusty will agree with being Sandy's sock puppet. He would have to buy into the "you have to do whatever WE say to do, not necessarily what YOU want to do", which translates into Moneyball, Sabremetrics, etc.

Homie Bud Black is putty. They can mold him as they wish.
I'm sure he would agree to anything, this being his first major league managerial gig.

is there any possibility that while they use moneyball they want to temper it with a good manager making decisions? Bochy did well mixing sabermetrics with his own opinions, and pure moneyball wasn't working well for Macha

Im hearing Baker and Hillman are front runners. NO decision yet.
They interviewed Bud Black AGAIN today.

I have heard that the announcement will be made THIS THURSDAY. Possibly at the big Padres Awards Banquet, which I think is also being held Thursday.
