2. Eric Wedge
Eric Wedge is a former manager of the year who currently works in the Blue Jays’ organization.
Like Alomar, Wedge is connected to Toronto through team president Mark Shapiro and GM Ross Atkins.
It was Shapiro who gave Wedge his first managerial chance in 2003.
The two almost made magic together, getting the Indians within one game of the World Series during the 2007 campaign.
Following his tenure in Cleveland, Wedge went onto the Seattle Mariners for three disastrous seasons, where he lost 95, 87 and 91 games, respectively.
In 10 seasons, he has a career record of 774-846.
Odds: Maybe higher than you think. Toronto will face a bumpy path back to being competitive and Shapiro knows Wedge has what it takes to lead a developing club.
