    I still think a wild card candidate, not on any of our radars, may exist. Looking at this myopically though, how could Oliver J. Marmol not be the choice? If I were laying down the odds on the next manager of the St. Louis Cardinals, Marmol would have to be hands down the leading candidate.

    You know Pugsley you may have something. Shildt certainly gave him a strong parting endorsement.

    If the Padres hire Shildt, I think there’s a high probability that Marmol follows him out to San Diego.

    I am sure Shildt will be tempted by San Diego considering the amount of talent on that roster and the beautiful weather in the area, but I seem to remember reading somewhere that he had a real fondness for the Baltimore Orioles. Maybe it was because he admired Earl Weaver. They don’t have a managerial opening right now but probably should.

    If I were Shildt I would wait to see if the Orioles job opens. They have a lot of good prospects coming up and it seems they could be getting better. The Padres clubhouse is tough I would stay clear. But it will depend which challenge is more appealing fixing the Padres or developing the Orioles.

    Mike Scioscia is a name I havent heard yet. And one I had forgotten about.

    David’s list of those four are way better than other candidates that I have seen.

    Marmol? Lol.

    Glad I could provide a bit of amusement for you, Cranny. We’ll see who’s laughing when Oliver J. Marmol is named the (? 36th Cardinal manager?)……how many skippers have we had?

    David – That’s really intriguing list.

    bccran, serious question, why do you not like Marmol?

    Gscottar, you are right about that Baltimore team. While Baltimore isn’t a great long term team but they could be really good for a few years. In a tough division though.

    It’s Clapp, Marmol, Schumaker. That is pretty much the 3. Holliday might be the dark horse. IMO.

    And as far as Pop goes. If they hire outside of the organization you need a sacrificial lamb for the new coach. I’d say he an Mcgee would be the 2 on the block.

    Very true. The AL East is brutal but the Orioles have a lot of tradition also. With the right manager and a little support from ownership I could see them getting back to their winning ways. It would be a good spot for Shildt.

    Pretty much spot on 858. Those are probably the top 3 candidates, although my dark horse is Beltran.

    As long as Skip does not undo-redo his wrist bands several times when he comes out to change pitchers, I am okay with him. He drove me nuts as a player doing that, so I don’t need to see any more of it as a skipper.

    Hey, “Skip the Skipper”, or “Skipper Skip”. Sounds like a natural. He seems like a Craig Counsell type. Guess that is natural since they played the same position.

    Nate, why do you think the list is the “sorriest” you have ever seen. Looks like some excellent baseball men there.

    Craig Counsell is a good comparison. I could also see Skip being similar to Gabe Kapler.

    I think Skip Schumaker is the likely choice of the known candidates.

    How much actual managerial experience does Skip have?

    Schumaker has 4 years of experience…all at the Major League level with the Padres.

    Skip has never managed anywhere, which bccran surely knew when he asked the question. Being second in command is his only coaching experience, which Marmol has, plus more.

    Marmol managed five years in the minors and has five years on an MLB staff.

    Stubby managed four years in the minors and spent four other years as a hitting coach. He has three more years on an MLB staff.

    The experience level difference is considerable, IMO.

    Surely after the philosophical differences Mo will want someone he is very familiar and comfortable with. Someone with intimate knowledge of the system and who is known to be all in. That would rule out Shumaker since he has not been with the organization for 10 years. I get that he was and is popular and a great guy. I also think Marmol is handicapped by having been so tight with Shildt. It is hard to expect that they were not like minded.
