Rejoice for now Cleveland, Sandy Alomar Jr. appears to be staying put. Although it is not a guarentee that he won't take a managerial job if offered, Sandy Alomar Jr. will not be leaving the Indians to join another staff unless he is in line for a promotion. Alomar told MLB.com he would accept Terry Francona's offer to join his staff.
Right now, Colorado and Boston are filling vacancies, with the Red Sox having interviewed Alomar Jr. last year, one would presume they'd at least target him as a candidate once again. Boston has not scheduled an interview with Alomar, having already interviewed former Indians Tony Pena and scheduled meetings with DeMarlo Hale and Brad Ausmus. The big name in the Rockies search is current player Jason Giambi.
With Alomar apparantely on board, it looks as if the rest of the staff will start to roundout. News leaked from Brad Mills himself that the former Astros manager will be signing with the Indians this week. He would naturally fill the spot of Steve Smith, who appears to be leaving on his own accord to watch his son play his senior year of college baseball. Also leaving is Bruce Fields, who reporetedly has latched on somewhere else already.
So far, both casualties of the coaching staff seem to be voluntary as the fates of first base coach Tom Widenbauer, interim pitching coach Ruben Niebla, and bullpen coach David Wallace are up in the air. You would expect Terry, like with Mills, would like to bring in some of his choices to round out his staff, but we will see.
It would also be interesting to see if the Indians make a press for Mike Sarbaugh to be involved in the major league staff some way. Of course a dream team of Francona, Alomar, Mills, and Sarbaugh would be preferred by most, we will see how things actually shake out.
Ultimately, it appears unlikely that Alomar is going anywhere in 2013. With only two jobs being open, and neither really hotly pursuing him, it appears he'll be an Indian once again.
For what it's worth, the Colorado job seems like it is danger zone. I would avoid that at all possible if I was Sandy. The fact that Jason Giambi is in the mix seems like... Well that just doesn't seem like a good idea.
