I agree. The guy is 49 and is still playing. Also, the reason Minaya signed him to a two-year deal was primarily to help the youngsters develop and offer tips to the stars as well. I know The Sporting News ran a story on how Franco would make a great manager since he's been around the game so long.

I also like Maddux, Glavine and Ausmus (among others). One wild card as well: Miguel Tejada. He doesn't miss a game and is a perfectionist. I know he only watches tape of the outs he's made, not the HR's and other good things he does at the plate.

Jason Varitek seems like a really easy pick for this.

AL:

Torre
Gibbons
Geren
Scioscia
Wedge

At least.

I'm too lazy to look up the NL though.

He could have Jose Mesa as his pitching coach too.

Mark Redmond of the Twins will make a very good coach. It's something that he wants to do and most likely will do in the near future.
