If he's good at making in-game decisions, that will help him find his next job. It seems like he has the respect of his peers and execs around the league. But he will need to show solid decision making while he's here. Win-Loss record won't even be factored in to his getting/not getting the next job he applies for. Because everyone knew he was taking on a job where he was expected to lose, and lose spectacularly.

 

I know these are coveted jobs. Especially for a guy whose professional career consisted of a handful of minor league seasons. But I'm still confused by his decision to take this job. Just like this conversation, he had to know he will be let go when/if things ever turn around. Given that the sport seems to respect him, patience may have been the better route. I'm sure a more desirable job would have come 'round   

I think he took the job, because it was 1 of 30.  If I recall correctly, he interviewed at a number of places, but came up short.  Team disaster offered him an opportunity.

I think Hyde may have underestimated how long this organization was going to tank, and just how cheap the Orioles under the Angelos family is.

Maybe he thought things were different here, after Peter disappeared and the sons took over. Judging from their spending habits, they make dear old Dad look like a drunken sailor on shore leave

I don't know, if managers hired to tank are always let go when it's time to compete then what better place than a 5 year tank job? Bo Porter got less than 2 years.

 

You can do a lot worse than being a major league manager for 4 years.

It would be interesting to know what he's earned throughout his contract. As far as I can see, it's been totally kept out of the public's eye. Given that it's his first managerial job, and that job is with Baltimore, it probably isn't enough to retire on. So his professional decorum will be a big part of whether he's considered for another job.

Casey Stengel had a losing record before he was hired to manage the Yankees.

Hyde is now in his 4th year, and if for nothing else he should get as long of a rope as Elias has. 

We do not know if he can manage a good team, we do know that no one can manage the Oriole teams of the last 3 Plus years.

I don't know anything about Brandon Hyde's managerial skills except he seems to be a very patient man.

And that is a very good thing.  If he weren’t, he would probably have knocked the general manager out by now.

Seems to me that he's doing a good job and has these guys ready to play. I'm definitely seeing improvement as this year goes along

He deserves a chance to manage the team when it actually is trying to compete, and  that should be next year or the whole regime should be on double secret probation.

Is he the manager of the year?

 

Hyde's been great and I'm looking forward to seeing how he does next year with a roster that should have some upgrades.   One small nitpick  my neighbor and I have been grumbling about is it's felt like he's stuck with the veterans a little too much at times at  the expense of pt for the young guys, Varva and Stowers immediately come to mind.

I think we have seen why riding the vets over the likes of Stowers and Vavra can be justified.

I think he's definitely the manager of the year.  Only other possible candidate is Scott Servais.

I think he has done a great job getting these guys to buy in and play good baseball every night. I think he's done a relatively poor job managing the pressure once we got to late August/September. Understandable, given there's been zero pressure up until that point. Send him to a seminar in the off-season on how to manage a winning club vs. a rebuilding one, and see what we have next year. It's easy with no expectations. As TwentyThirtyFive and I have been talking about in the game threads lately, next year is the real test for him.

Exceeding expectations is the name of the game for MOY.  Meeting them, even if the expectations are lofty, only gets you the prize if you're a new manager or if nobody else has exceeded expectations.  I think Hyde should be the heavy favorite with Servais the next most likely.

You can see that he wears everything. Which I love that he cares so much. But yeah, we will see next year.
