Catchers usually make for good coaches/managers.

Paul Lo Duca would be a GREAT coach like somebody said earlier, as would Carlos Delgado. Delgado is always coaching other Mets' hitters as is and sharing his "notes" that he has written in that notebook he keeps in the dugout. It is obvious the guy studies the game and is more then happy to share his knowledge.

I was also going to throw out Curt Schilling. Now I can't see Schilling being just a "coach." I think with Curt it would be a manager or nothing. Yes the guy is an ego-maniac, but its obvious he likes to be in control, is extremly competitive, and has the "personality" to get through to younger players if he was their manager.
I am a New York Jets, New York Mets, and New York Knicks fan. I know misery like few other sports fans know ...

Mark DeRosa.....Ivy League smart. Waited for his chance. Plays multiple positions. Quarterback in college. Learned from Bobby Cox at the beginning of his major league career.

Some of the others mentioned are obvious....Maddux, Matheny, Ausmus, LoDuca, etc.

Others I like, Chad Moeller, Jeff Conine, David Eckstein, Craig Biggio, Jamie Carroll, Luis Gonzalez, Giles Brothers, and many, many more would have a chance to be good coaches if they had the desire and oppurtunity...................

I agree. The first name that came to mind was Varitek. I think he'd be a pretty good pitching coach.

I could easily see Curt becoming the next Sweet Lou Pinellla. It's not so much the onfield blowups, but more like the psychotic press conference rants and personal insults. I'd also put Boomer Wells in this catagory, but I'd see him more as a horribly out of shape bench coach.

But on a serious note, we all agree that catchers should make good coaches, but how many current managers are former catchers??
