I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that I don't think Eric Wedge will be our manager next year. I'm going to assume that would make all coaching positions available as well. Who are the people we would want in charge of our Indians for the next 7-10 years?
My first choices are Tony LaRussa as the manager and Leo Mazzone as pitching coach (or Dave Duncan).
Tony's contract expires at the end of this season and I've heard that he and Mozeliak don't really get along. Although, St. Louis might lock up LaRussa simply because he has a really good relationship with Pujols and I've heard that Tony staying would be one of the biggest reasons for Albert to stay in "the loo".
I'm surprised that Mazzone hasn't been picked up by anyone since Baltimore fired him. He did have one of the best starting rotations (debatably) in MLB history, so he had a lot to work with in Atlanta. Baltimore gave him nothing to work with, so I'm not sure how much of that rotation's lack of success was his fault. Either way, I'd like to give him a shot here.
For Dave Duncan. Anyone that can get Kyle Lohse and Joel Piniero to look like quality pitchers is doing something right.
Have at it. Who are your favorites if Wedge is shown the door?
