What current players will be great coaches?

Postby jfg » Thu Apr 12, 2007 1:31 am

I think the subject says it all...what do you think? Usually it's role players and catchers.

I think Yadier Molina would be a good coach as well as Varitek.

I guess Mike Matheny is no longer a current player but I think he would make an excellent coach.

From the 1+ years I've watched him closely in NY, I think LoDuca would make a good coach.

John Smoltz would make a great pitching coach at least

Greg Maddux
Brad Ausmus
Mike Lieberthal
Sandy Alomar Jr. - I think he's still playing.


Catchers usually make for good coaches/managers.
