It is certainly possible. The two Alex cora and AJ Hinch have returned to management since their involvement in the Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal.
Current Astros bench coach Joe Espada is second, followed by director of athletics Bob melvin, Buck Showalter who last handled the Orioles in 2018 is third, and Brad Ausmus who last led the Angels in 2019 is fourth.
BetOnline.ag odds differ from OddsChecker. Espada is the favorite at +400, followed by Beltran (+500), Ron washington, which has not been successful since 2014, (+600), and Showalter (+800). Ausmus is at +900 with Melvin at +1200.
As always, it’s fun to see the betting odds for contestants who don’t stand a chance. Old Mets Mike Piazza to +1200, David wright at +2000, Doc Gooden at +5000, Keith hernandez to +5000, and Darryl Strawberry at +6600.
