Trammell gets short-listed

It appears that Alan Trammell is one of three finalists for the Los Angeles Dodgers managerial job. The other finalists are Orel Hersheiser and Terry Collins.

It would be quite the coup for Trammell to land this job. Given Kirk Gibson’s prominence in Dodger lore, he would most assuredly be part of Trammell’s staff. For both their sake though I’d hope that he wouldn’t give Gibson the bench coach role. I think the combined managerial inexperience of the two was a hinderance.

    I’d like to see Trammell get another opportunity. Hopefully he will learn from his mistakes and make the most of his next managing job (which I believe will happen at some point). I agree that a good start would be a more experienced coaching staff.

    I hope he gets it. It’d be a better situation for him to start in that what he walked into 3 years ago.
