After seeing the ongoing parade of candidates to take over as the new manager for the Toronto Blue Jays, I commented on Twitter yesterday how things are starting to look like a March Madness bracket.
Well, low and behold here is a visual aid to help keep track of all the candidates: your official Blue Jays Managerial Candidate Bracket.
Notice how three names have already been crossed off the list: Rick Renteria, Eric Wedge and Tim Bogar. They have either kept their respective jobs (Tim Bogar), taken new positions within their organization (Rick Renteria) or are now coaching the Seattle Mariners (Eric Wedge).
Things will likely be fast and furious over the next few weeks as the Blue Jays finally begin to whittle down the 24 candidates to a select few. Stay tuned here for updates to the Blue Jays Managerial Candidate Bracket as we will eventually crown a winner!
**Update** According to MLB Trade Rumors, the candidates have been whittled down to 3: DeMarlo Hale, John Farrell, and Sandy Alomar Jr.
While Brian Butterfield was not mentioned in the post, I’m going to assume he’s still in the running.
So we’re down to the final four!
