Jason Stark thinks Joe Girardi would manage the Royals

One friend of Joe Girardi told Rumblings this week: "If Joe were to ask me whether he should take this (Orioles) job, I'd tell him he's nuts. I just can't see him working for Peter Angelos. I'd tell him to wait for a better job."

Girardi's buddies in the game say the one job he'd be interested in besides the Yankees, Mets and Cubs would surprise you. It's the Royals, if Buddy Bell ever gets fired, because of Girardi's respect for GM Dayton Moore.

I don't know if I believe that at all, but he sure knows how to get something out of nothing.

Yeah, he made the Marlins respectable last year. The Royals would have competition from other teams looking for new managers this off-season.

He took the Florida Marlins to the Wild Card almost last year and they had the smallest payroll of all teams, I think it was the smallest payroll anyway.

He would be a solid coach for years to come. Not far removed from the game and young enough to get the players attention... Plus he has had tons of success... Not hard to get players to buy into shiney flashy rings...

He was the NL Manager of the Year last season. He was fired because he and management didn't see eye to eye.

I'm not quite as high on him as everybody else. He did a good job last year, but if he wants to come here he has to agree to shut up and let Dayton do his job. It could just be their GM is an idiot, but he did a heck of a job acquiring talent when everyone knew he was dumping salary.

I think Girardi gets the Yankees job after this year. If The Boss decided to fire Cashman, they'll probably go with Donnie Baseball. But if Cashman's around, I fully expect them to chose Girardi.

If the Royals hire any white dude for the job next (regardless of past experience/success), Frank White's gonna be on the phone to the ACLU, the union, the commissioner's office, the almighty Reverend Al Sharpton, the almightier Reverend Jesse Jackson, and the almightiest Oprah faster than his pivot on a double play.

No way. That's nonsense. He's not even managing at AA any more because he felt he'd be better served in the front office.

Answer me this: If Frank White's such a great managerial candidate, why hasn't ANY other MLB team ever interviewed for that post?

DaneMcCloud:

First, I didn't say he's the most deserving of the job or should be hired on the spot as soon as Bell leaves.

Second, you stated the reason White's working in the front office may well be that he feels "better served"(?). I don't know if that's the primary reason though. I do, however, know through the article published in the KC Star about 2 months ago that he realized that the managerial selection process was based on who-do-you-know vs. what-have-you-done, having seen others get hired as major league managers with less experience while not getting any calls for interviews.

I think White's minor league managerial experience is what it is. He did manage a team with a good number of promising and talented young ball players to a championship. That shouldn't mean that White's a great manager, but on the other hand, he didn't finish below expectations. Regardless, the one factor he's got on his side is that he'd be familiar with quite a few of the current Royals and their strengths/weaknesses.

Damn, that would be great. I still can't believe the Cubs took Pinella over him. Well, actually I can believe that.
