Interesting note today.
Gabe Kapler was asked to interview this week with the Cubs and Giants for their manager vacancies, which leads you to believe that the fired Phillies manager will manage again. If so, Kapler would be just the third Phillies manager in the last 35 years to manage again after his time was up in Philadelphia.
Pete Mackanin, Ryne Sandberg, Charlie Manuel, Larry Bowa, Nick Leyva, Lee Ellia, and John Felske managed their last games in a Phillies uniform while Terry Francona and Jim Fregosi found managerial work elsewhere.
A pretty random cut-off point, however, since Luchessi, Ozark, Green and Corrales all managed elsewhere.
I had pretty much forgotten about Fregosi being in Toronto. He was still only 58 years old at that point. Was younger than Kapler (36) when he got the Angels job.
