It certainly wasn't Green's fault this team never finished above .500 during his tenure, but the Padres want to go in a different direction. So, who are they looking at?
Well, they already have a list of candidates they want to interview, and couple of them are simply crazy.
Both Bochy and Scioscia are icons for the Giants and Angels, respectively, and while Bochy began his managerial career with the Padres, why would he forgo retirement and take that job?
Moises Alou and Mark Loretta don't have any managerial experience at the major league level, so there's certainly risk there on San Diego's end, even though it wouldn't cost much.
Ron Washington makes the most sense, as he went to the World Series a couple times as the manager of the Texas Rangers. However, he's currently the third base coach of the Atlanta Braves and they have something special going on that could make him want to stay.
