NUMBER 3: LARRY BOWA

Larry Bowa is Philadelphia’s bench coach, but he does indeed have some managerial experience – including a stint with the Phillies as their manager for four seasons, starting in 2001 and ending in 2004.

More from That Balls Outta Here

Before he managed the Phillies, he managed the Padres for two seasons. His record was 81-127 in San Diego and following the 1988 season he was let go.

Recently, Bowa said he’d like to stay with the team. During his time as the manager before, he has a record of 337-308. Bowa could be a likely candidate for the job.

General manager Matt Klentak said during his press conference on Friday, that’d he be interviewing both internal and external candidates – so does that mean one of those interviewees will be Bowa?
