Omar Vizquel Wants to Manage

Is it possible that the grizzled, older managers of our youth have fallen by the wayside and been replaced by scrappy, younger skippers?

Well, if the recent successes of Kirk Gibson, Robin Ventura and Don Mattingly are any indication...the answer might be "yes". 

That in mind, is it surprising to anyone that eleven-time Gold Glover Omar Vizquel has his sights set on managing one day?  And is it surprising that the Toronto Blue Jays infielder made his desire to be a big league skipper known via Twitter?

Probably not.

The 24-year veteran was doing what he does often, answering fans via the opular social media website when someone asked, well...you can read the exchange below.

 
The 45-year-old Vizquel has been pretty much been hanging on as a mentor so none of this is all that shocking.  More shocking will be the number of teams that end up passing on the opportunity to have this future Hall of Famer (yes, I said it) take the helm of their clubhouse.

Don't know if it will happen but a lot of people in Cleveland would like to see You and Sandy Alomar back together in Cleveland, but with a cheap skate like Dolan we probably won't see that happen let alone a winnig team. your friend always Dennis Benduhn P.S. At 81 Mom is still rooting for you.
