Multiple candidates are competing for the vacant head coach of the Cleveland Guardians. Milwaukee Brewers manager Craig Counsell (53) is one of them.
John Heyman of the New York Post in the U.S. revealed the list of Cleveland manager candidates on his social media (SNS) on the 28th (Korean time). According to Heyman, candidates include Seattle Mariners coach Steven Bott, San Francisco coach Craig Albernatz, New York Yankees coach Carlos Mendoza, Chicago Cubs coach Andy Greene and Coach Counsell. According to local Cleveland media, Coach Counsell received permission from the Milwaukee team for an interview earlier this week.
Coach Counsell led Milwaukee to fall baseball five times in six years. “(Counsell) likes to use every guy on the bench, every guy in the bullpen,” said outfielder Keon Broxton, who played for Milwaukee for three years starting in 2016. “No matter what your skills are, he’s going to use them in the right way. “He praised his mercenary skills. His career record as manager is 707 wins and 625 losses (0.531 winning percentage). Coach Counsell spent 6 years of his 16-year Major League (MLB) career in Milwaukee. In 2001, he also experienced a World Series win with ‘BK’ Kim Byeong-hyeon with the Arizona Diamondbacks.온라인카지노
He was recently mentioned as a candidate for the New York Mets manager, and was also evaluated as a candidate for the Cleveland manager, so his stock price soared. Locally, it is more likely that he will go to Cleveland rather than New York. One of the reasons is salary. According to Heyman, the annual salary of coach Terry Francona, who led Cleveland this season, was $4.5 million (6.1 billion won), the highest in the industry. Region can also be considered. The New York Post said, ‘With deep pockets (investments), the Mets could offer Coach Counsell a more ambitious organization, but not a home,’ and ‘Counsell, who went to high school in Milwaukee, lives in Wisconsin (where Milwaukee is located) with his family. ‘ he added.
