He may not have the desired change-of-scenery effect the others would but he has long been rumored a future manager, having interviewed with the Arizona Diamondbacks, Texas Rangers, Minnesota Twins, and the St. Louis Cardinals.

He would still bring a different philosophy to the job and maybe a change, even if its an in-house, interim change, could have a positive effect on the team. McEwing would have the added benefit of already knowing the roster, the players, and how they could best be deployed and certainly fits Reinsdorf’s mold of no major league managerial experience, although he was the head man in the minors for a few years both with Class A Winston Salem and AAA Charlotte.

McEwing would at least be a change of pace for a club that needs it, and perhaps could turn this into the long-term managerial job many believe he man who earned the moniker “Super Joe” as a player deserves.
