08:07 AM ET 11.06 | How can the Cardinals be conducting a manager search when they previously have denied third base coach Jose Oquendo the chance to interview for manager's jobs. You would think Oquendo would be an obvious choice but he's not. Terry Francona is positioned perfectly to get this job as owner Bill DeWitt knows he's going to need star power, especially if Pujols leaves.

Francona is the best man for the job. But the Cards owe Oquendo if they stood between him and better jobs elsewhere.

Tito is a good man, and was unnecessarily made a scapegoat in the Beantown September meltdown. He deserves a fresh start in a place where he can continue to have success. The Cubbies will not be a fresh start, as he will still be in Theo's shadow. St. Louis and Terry are the perfect match.

i guess oquendo most lack in experience, though there's allways first time to become a manager!!

does this mean francona won't be working together with epstein? does epstein its holding francona as a plan b in case the new manager falls apart??

November 6, 2011  10:19 AM ET

well if francona gets hired in the cards organization, this means he will remain red color!!!

Pujols is the top free agent.

the cards will need star power? so this means that francona would give a boost of confidence to this franchise? then again this a positive approach towards making business!!

alacran, have you ever considered condensing your thoughts into one post at a time? Or are you just trying to drive up your post numbers?

November 6, 2011  10:49 AM ET

if the cards are able to sign francona, if the cards do sign pujols, and sign cuddyer, then this team will have enough offense and flexibility in their lineup!!

November 6, 2011  10:51 AM ET

does this means the cubs last hope its fielder as a offense and power hitter free agent??

November 6, 2011  10:52 AM ET

it seems that the cubs will trade zambrano, and soriano's contract for vernon wells!!

 
November 6, 2011  10:54 AM ET

pujols will ending signning with the cards, after all its better a place that you know than a place that you don't know!!
