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.
