It was reported earlier this offseason that former Atlanta Braves backstop Stephen Vogt emerged as a top candidate for the Cleveland Guardians manager position. While Vogt did spend the majority of his playing career with the Oakland A's, he was still a part of the most successful Braves season since 1995. Vogt has a World Series ring from Atlanta's 2021 journey.
Vogt seems like a great fit for a manager position. After 10 seasons in the big leagues, most of those as a catcher, he knows what it is like to make in-game decisions in real time. He has a humble "get buisness done" attitude and would mesh well with modern day players after being a part of the new era of baseball since he just retired in 2022.
