You're Sandy Alderson, and you're feeling better every day. Did I say every day? Every minute!

Because despite your disaster of a season, your division rivals just got knocked out of the playoffs. Six years they've been jacked for a championship, and six years they've gone home without so much as a pennant. They might be firing their manager.

Which reminds you. Find a manager fast. FAST! An experienced one, too! Lucky for you, you've been narrowing it down.

Which three of these bench jockeys do you call in for an interview?
