As many of you already know the Dbacks have hired a bunch of flashy names to help out Kirk Gibson in the clubhouse. The all-star cast includes:
Kirk Gibson: Manager
Alan Trammel: Bench Coach
Don Baylor: Hitting Coach
Charles Nagy: Pitching Coach
Eric Young: First Base Coach
Matt Williams: Third Base Coach
The 4 new additions (Trammel, Baylor, Nagy and Young) have “11 All-Star appearances, 7 Silver Slugger awards, 4 Gold Glove awards, 2 World Series championships, 1 World Series MVP, 1 Regular Season MVP, and 1 Manager of the Year award.”
As the Mets appear to have finalized one piece of the puzzle for 2011 and beyond, what names will Sandy look to fill Mets clubhouse?
Multiple reports have Alderson as the type of guy who does not believe in spending a ton of money on a manager. Those same sources also go back and forth on Wally Backman being the leading candidate for manager. Lets assume for a moment that Wally B is the new manager. Will Sandy look to surround him with experience the same way the Dbacks have surrounded a relative newbie in Gibson?
So lets have a little fun in the comment section. First you can answer the question should the Mets look to fill these spots with an “all-star” lineup or perhaps find the next “all-star” coaches? Second, have a little fun in coming up with your own all-star cast.
