MLB: Padres and Cardinals Fight for Same Manager; Who will win it?

Baseball cases and things. San Diego Padres is looking for a new manager and one of its internal coaches since 2018 sounds to have that position, however, not in that club but with the St. Louis Cardinals, an organization that this Thursday was left without a foreman.

Players in San Diego, however, are hearing that the former Cardinals fan favorite, Skip schumaker, could be a candidate for the role:

There would be support from Padres players if Schumaker were considered the next Padres manager, although it is not yet clear in which direction Baseball Ops president AJ Preller will lean.

Jared Michael (Skip) Schumaker played with the Cardinals from 2005 to 2012, it was eight years in total in St. Louis and the funny thing is that he never played with the Padres or in the minor leagues. Now both the Friars and the Red Birds fight it out. Who will get it?

The 41-year-old Schumaker joined Padres in 2016 and since 2020 has been promoted to associate manager.

In short, some Padres players have heard that Skip Schumaker could interview the Cardinals for his managerial role. They wonder if he’s a candidate in San Diego.

They would like that. Or maybe Schumaker could join Dave Roberts as a former Padres bench coach who goes on to manage a storied franchise.

I am fond of the King of Sports, especially the Boston Red Sox in MLB and in general all of Mexican baseball. This profession has given me the opportunity to cover major events such as the Caribbean Series, LMB All Star, LMP (uninterrupted since 2009), signings of important players. I had the chance to attend the 2013 World Classic in Arizona, USA, albeit as a fan. Apart from this beautiful sport, I love basketball, where I have also narrated games and even an NBA friendly 10 years ago, but I carry baseball in my veins. Bachelor of Communication Sciences from the Autonomous University of Sinaloa (UAS) , from which I graduated in 2011. I was born in Mazatlán, Sinaloa and started in the world of sports journalism in 2004 in the newspaper El Sol de Mazatlán, where I was a baseball columnist and reporter at the same time. In January 2009 I came to El Debate as a journalist reporter and it was almost six years (in the first stage), until in November 2014 I emigrated to the radio providing my services in Línea Directa-Grupo RSN. My cycle there ended in July 2019 and after a few days, El Debate gave me another opportunity to work and opened the doors for me again. That is how I came to Al Bat, where I have been since 2019 as a web journalist.
