Bench Coach Option
Gary Disarcina certainly has the background. A young manager? Check. Former player? Check. Managerial experience? Check. Executive experience? Check. Knows the organization? Check. Media experience? Check. So just check all the boxes for the former PawSox manager and current Red Sox bench coach.
Disarcina we all know from his work on NESN so that area of the media is covered. Disarcina was a consultant for Boston, as well as managing in their minor league system for years with even some system-wide work as an infield instructor before leading the PawSox for one season. Disarcina knows the players and the organization.
I do have a fondness for players who were never up in lights stars and that is Disarcina who did make one All-Star team in his 12-year career – a lifetime .258 career. Looking at the managerial fodder within the system Disarcina stands out despite not having the helm of an MLB club although he was a finalist with the Mariners.
Disarcina would be my internal pick.
