SHHHHHHHHH! PHILLIES SECRETLY LIKE CHIP HALE AS NEW MANAGER!

By Sam Bush

As most baseball fans are concentrating on the upcoming World Series, the Phillies are under the radar on their new manager, according to Jon Heyman of Fan Rag:

The Phillies have tried to keep everything quiet, but a few names have leaked out. Here’s a new one: Chip Hale (above), the former Diamondbacks manager and current A’s coach, went for an interview. Other names that have surfaced include Indians pitching coach Mickey Callaway, Phillies special assistant Jorge Velandia, Phillies minor-league manager Dusty Wathan, and Red Sox bench coach Gary DiSarcina. Brad Ausmus is another who’s thought to be on their list, but it’s hard to tell with the Phillies. Hale did a terrific job his first year with the D-backs, and one NL GM remarked, “I don’t understand why he wouldn’t be a candidate everywhere.” Hale was the runner-up when the Mets hired Terry Collins, and while the Mets showed initial interest, it isn’t certain whether he remains on their list.
