I guess Lou isn't coming back next year...my co-workers’ suggestions for a replacement

The rumor around the world right now is that Lou is going to announce that he’s retiring at the end of the season…

I know we are all heart broken over this...and while I put out there my suggestions as to who should replace Lou next year (Ryne Sandberg, Alan Trammell, Joe Girardi, Fredi Gonzalez), my Brewer fan co-workers had a number of suggestions for who should replace Lou next year themselves.

So here are their suggestions, in order of who they like the best (and their reasoning behind the choice):

  • Tom Berenger (Didn’t you watch Major League?)
  • Rod Blagojevich (Because he could do dirty political things to win the World Series)
  • Oprah (She could just buy a World Series title)
  • Hugh Heffner (Never an empty seat at Wrigley)
  • Betty White (Everyone loves Betty White)
  • Bugs Bunny (Best cartoon pitcher of all time)
  • The singer of the Take Me Out To The Ballgame from the previous game. (You need to give those people more to do)
  • Mark Grace (Because he can drown his sorrows in some drinks after each loss)
  • Ken Macha (Because the Brewers really don’t want him)
  • Corbin Bernsen (See Tom Berenger)
  • Dolly Parton (No reason given)
  • Larry Flint (He drools less than the current Cubs manager)
  • Don Zimmer (He did a good job last time…didn’t he?)
  • Jose Canseco (He’ll get those guys pumped up!)
  • Kosuke Fukudome (Because the Japanese are just smarter)
  • Mark McGwire (See Jose Canseco)
  • Tom Selleck (That mustache!)
  • That guy who starred in Barney Miller (Same as Selleck)
  • Courtney Love (She’ll have those guys wired before every game)
  • Me (Because they don’t want to work with me any more)
