08:20 AM ET 10.30 | Matt Williams' MLB managing dreams may be nearing reality. The Arizona Diamondbacks' third-base coach appears to be one of the leading candidates to replace Jim Tracy in Colorado and is also a potential replacement for John Farrell in Toronto. Williams, who is managing the Salt River Rafters in the Arizona Fall League, talked with Rockies assistant general manager Bill Geivett late last week, a conversation that could be a precursor to a formal interview. ... The Arizona Fall League is known as a finishing school for top baseball talent, and while the players get most of the attention, the list of successful managerial graduates includes Dusty Baker, Mike Scioscia, Terry Francona and Don Mattingly.

I think being bald when you're 23 is probably a good predictor for a guy having the knack for managing (see Leo Durocher).

When you go bald at that young of an age you never look like you're getting older over the years.

No. He lust looked old because he was bald so young.

How's the weather in your neck of the woods? I'm guessing Sith Lord is without power. Cyder is in New York as well.

Hello from sunny Denmark. Hope everyone made it through the tumult with little damage and no injury.

When did they start allowing Bruce Springsteen to name the hurricanes over there?

Yeah ... I send Cyder an FM asking about how he fared. I hope he checks in ... forgot Sith was from there too, but the force is strong within him. ;PWe were virtually unscathed, but there's a lot of damage in the state.

Sith is out on the end of Long Island so I'm guessing he had a wild ride. Hopefully they didn't stay.
