Red hot handicapping update
A semi-random gauge of who’s likely to get the job. Based on current press coverage, rumors, substantiated and un, educated guesses, and so on. We claim no insight into front office machinations. Please, no wagering.
A brief step back from my standard odds-posting without commentary. Stone’s story, as you’d expect, changes the odds a lot: DiPoto, who’d been included in a group that lost traction the longer they went on without being mentioned, goes back up. Tony Bernazard, who we hadn’t heard a peep about, goes from “field” to a significant chance. LaCava, Woodfork, and Ng, who we’ve been talking about forever, get their chances vindicated. I’m relucant to give up on Hahn, who was briefly the hot rumor and someone the M’s were seriously pursuing. And yet, we give Larry an official USSM Endorsement every year for good reason, so you see why this gets well-shaken.
I’ll give some brief thoughts on who this means and for what when I have a chance, which may not happen. Anyway!
|LaCava (1, 2)||25%|
|Ng (1, 2)||20%|
