    Gaslamp Ball: Padres prospect Logan Driscoll is excelling early in his career

    Logan Driscoll was drafted by the Padres 73rd overall in the 2019 MLB Draft.

    Driscoll is a catcher from Berke, Virginia. Representing his hometown means a lot to him.

    "Growing up and going to high school and college in the same area has been a really special experience," Driscoll said. "Just throughout this whole first season, the random texts and support that I get from the people back home has been special. I'm really grateful for that."

    For 3 years, Driscoll attended George Mason. Following his junior year, he was drafted and signed with the Padres.

    SignOnSanDiego.com: Padres weigh merits of Tingler, Washington for manager

    Who the favorite is to be the Padres' next manager depends on who is offering the opinion.

    Which means there might not be a favorite, as the organization's decision makers meet Friday to decide whether they will offer the job to Jayce Tingler or Ron Washington.

    The two finalists for the job were in town the past two days. They were the only ones among seven interviewed by General Manager A.J. Preller to be invited for second interviews.

    Their visits included dinner with Executive Chairman Ron Fowler and General Partner Peter Seidler. Tingler was taken to Baci on Wednesday and Washington to Del Frisco's on Thursday.

    SignOnSanDiego.com: Padres owners meet with Washington, day after they met with Tingler

    Padres owners Ron Fowler and Peter Seidler interviewed Ron Washington on Thursday, a day after they did so with Jayce Tingler.

    This was the first time Fowler and Seidler sat down with any of the candidates for the Padres manager job. They had dinner with both.

    General Manager A.J. Preller and members of his staff conducted the first round of formal interviews with seven candidates vying to replace the fired Andy Green. Tingler and Washington were the only two brought to San Diego for a meeting with ownership.

    This is Preller's hire, and he has effectively been put on notice that his own job hangs in the balance of how the new manager fares.

    SignOnSanDiego.com: Column: Padres as "Texas Rangers West" is nothing new in San Diego

    The Padres feel like "Texas Rangers West" these days, a sort of thing that's true to Padres history.

    The hope is that folks who used to work for the Rangers when Texas was doing big things -- reach the World Series back to back -- can earn their spurs here likewise.

    I'd venture that if the Padres got to one World Series, then their fans would be as happy as a clam at high tide (a saying some Texans claim as their own).

    The Rangers-Padres connection begins with top Padres baseball exec A.J. Preller, who was an inner-circle scout with the Rangers when the team build up its talent and reached the Word Series in 2010-11.

    Gaslamp Ball: Bob Henley interviews with Padres

    As of this morning, Joe Maddon has officially become the new manager of the Angels, meaning that SoCal's other manager-seeking team is likely going to have to settle for less sexy options.

    Enter: Bob Henley.

    As a longtime member of the Nats front office and coaching staff, Henley is probably best known for...well, actually, I suppose people don't really know him for anything in particular. He's Bob Henley. He's currently the Nats third base coach.

    The list of Padre managerial interviewees now includes Henley, Ron Washington, former Angels manager Brad Ausmus, Padres interim manager Rod Barajas, and Rangers employee Jayce Tingler.

    SignOnSanDiego.com: Padres pare manager candidate list to a pair: Jayce Tingler, Ron Washington

    The Padres are nearing the naming of their next manager.

    Perhaps.

    For now, just two candidates remain, though there is a possibility the team shifts gears if neither Jayce Tingler nor Ron Washington is hired.

    Both are scheduled to meet with the team's ownership for the first time, and a decision could come as soon as next week.

    Tingler's name remaining near the top of the list is somewhat surprising yet also predictable.

    The Texas Rangers' coach, who is in San Diego for a follow-up interview with the Padres on Wednesday, turns 39 on Nov.

    SignOnSanDiego.com: Padres interview Brad Ausmus

    Former Tigers and Angels manager Brad Ausmus interviewed with Padres officials on Wednesday, as the team continued its quest to replace Andy Green.

    The Padres, according to people familiar with the process, have tentatively narrowed their list of managerial candidates to no more than five men. However, as has been the case all along, a source again indicated on Wednesday that the situation is fluid.

    The full list of those under consideration could not be ascertained. But it is known that Rangers coach Jayce Tingler is a favorite of General Manager A.J. Preller and that Braves third base coach Ron Washington, who managed the Rangers during part of Preller's time in that organization, is a candidate.
