Mooney & Sharma have an article from yesterday saying Farrell is not being considered.

Ron Washington should be a serious candidate

These were quotes from the article when the Padres hired Green. That seems to check a lot of boxes on things they want to move towards. Better preparation, more using and understanding of metrics, shifting, etc.

“He's an aggressive manager and I know now that when we play San Diego, they are going to be well prepared," Hale said. "One of the things he's really good at is exposing other teams' weaknesses..... Green, regarded by his peers as well-spoken, intelligent and confident, is also adept at advanced metrics. He worked with the team's infielders and, specifically, handled all the team's shifting efforts.”

At this point it seemed a given that they were staying, but here's pretty much confirmation

Clearly asserting dominance early. Ross on day one of Spring Training.

Is Venable returning? If not, that means zero POC on the big league staff, right? In fact, not so many in the entire organization.

I think Venable is TBD depending on if he gets a job elsewhere (I think Mooney said they want him back) and they still have 3B coach, possibly 1B/Venable spot and that quality assurance role Denorfia had to fill. Is Strode technically still on the staff with just a different role? Or did he move to FO or something?

Sounds like the Rickettses are meddling in the hiring process.

If you see a POC standing directly behind them in a Cubs' or Sinclair shirt at the next press conference then you know it's true.

He seems to be saying and doing a lot of the right things, IMO.

Haven't looked at that yet, but I watched his press conference at the winter meetings and he seemed a lot better than his intro conference.

The highlight of this offseason is going to be when gr gets arrested in a hilariously botched assassination attempt of Manager David.

Venable says he’s staying on the staff for the year, he was in contention for the Astros job. Fwiw.
