… If he doesn’t get the skipper gig.
Sorta funny how little info has come out regarding Wally’s interview this weekend. Word is Wally thinks it went very well but haven’t heard much more than that.
But since there’s suddenly all this buzz about Terry Collins as the frontrunner for the job I’m wondering about the possibilities of Wally in the dugout without the manager’s title.
The Post, or was it the News(?), last week suggested Wally wouldn’t accept anything less than a skipper gig but I’m not buying that for a second.
Why on earth wouldn’t he take a coaching job? If he wants to manage there are 2 paths: manage in the minors or coach in the bigs. And for a guy who was on the blackball list just last year it seems to me a coaching gig in the bigs is a pretty good deal.
The flip side is would Wally make a good coach or does he need to be the man in charge?
Definitely something for management to consider…
