Way to kill the suspense, Jayson

>> Friday

I've never really had any beefs with Jayson Stark--not to mention that he seems like he'd be a super, duper nice guy--and this post is sheer nitpicky crap. But I just found this column to be totally unhelpful.

Jayson is out to answer the question of who may be managing the Mariners and Mets next year. The answer?

Bobby Valentine, Jim Fregosi, Buck Showalter, Ken Macha, Bob Brenly, Jim Tracy, Joey Cora, Ryne Sandberg, Brad Mills, John Farrell, DeMarlo Hale, Ron Wotus, Ron Roenicke, Ted Simmons, Pete Mackanin, Joel Skinner, Terry Pendleton, Ken Oberkfell, Gary Varsho, Andy Fox, Eddie Perez, Tim Bogar, Jose Oquendo, Tom Foley, Scott Ulger, Jamie Quirk, Don Wakamatsu, Dave Jauss, John Mizerock, Pat Kelly, Lenn Sakata, Mike Quade, Ty Waller, Lorenzo Bundy, Torey Lovullo, Robby Thompson, Don Mattingly, [or] Whitey Herzog.

I don't really care much about the subject, nor am I at all bothered by this column. I just think it's funny that Stark listed enough candidates to not only fill those two vacancies but to re-fill them after the first two guys get fired while still having enough names left over to re-staff every other managerial position in the league and man a moderate-sized sea vessel.

I just can't believe Terry Bevington was left off the list.

You listed 37 names. Subtracting the four who will be working the GM and managerial job(by the way GO SOX! cUBS SUCK!) we end with 34. As an enthusiast of merchant shipping I would say you could run one large container vessel (3-400 containers) or two mid-size vessels(2-300 containers) with a crew of 34. that's about 500 containers, nothing to sneeze at. Of course, this assumes that the ships will be able to load a full load with a competent crew, always a dicey proposition. Either way you're taking a huge risk as any inexperienced crew can run afoul of demurrage thus building up the costs. I would trust this crew with one mid-sized container vessel if Vinnie was named captain(due to his piraty nature).
