Showalter vs Valentine

He was also the most beloved manager Japan has ever seen.

 

He's a proven winner. That's what we need. An experienced, semi strict, manager who has shown in the past he can win and is not afraid to wear funny disguises after getting ejected.

 

If that's not the ideal manager, I don't know what is.

You can't ignore what Valentine did in Japan.

 

(cut and paste from ESPN

 

Valentine managed the Chiba Lotte Marines from 2004-09. He inherited one of Japanese baseball's worst teams and took them to a league championship in 2005.

 

edit:

 

I happen to think there could be some real value in learning to win at the Japanese brand of baseball.

I agree. After every homerun a Marlins Mermaid should be waiting at home plate with a stuffed Billy doll as a reward.

Is there something actually appealing about Valentine other than the fact that he wore a disguise once? Yes, he had two good years in New York (neverminding that their front office brought in some great players those years), but what is particuarly valuable about him as a manager?

SOS for me. At least he's a veteran who will hopefully command respect in the clubhouse. And I don't mind listening to him talk on ESPN, so whatever.
