Succeeding Jim Leyland

In the spirit of yesterday's Cabrera trade post, my thoughts turned to Jim Leyland: how long does he want to manage?

More to the point, is his eventual successor in house? Gene Lamont had a near miss with Boston this year, and I wonder if he's the organization's safe pick when Leyland decides to hang it up.

Joe Maddon would be nice; so would Terry Francona. Last summer, when there was a lot of fan talk about firing Leyland, no one could ever come up with an apt replacement. Since I'm just spitballing here I haven't delved into Joe Maddon's contract status but knowing Francona's available, and the esteemed Lamont (tongue in cheek) is right here, it's fun to speculate.
