Have you heard any rumors?

Have you heard any rumors about a possible new Archbishop of Los Angeles? Feel free to share them here.

From the Chancery rumor-mill:
Bishop Soto of Sacramento;
Bishop Salazar, Auxiliary of LA;
Bishop Tamayo of Laredo, Texas.

From the Sacred Page Blog:
Bishop Olmstead of Phoenix;
Archbishop Gomez of San Antonio;
Bishop Soto of Sacramento;
Bishop Garcia of Monterey.

From the Please Oh Please Let It Be One of These:
Archbishop Gomez of San Antonio;
Bishop Olmstead of Phoenix;
Bishop Cordileone of Oakland.

From the To Keep the St. John's Faculty Happy:
Split Santa Barbara/Ventura counties into its own diocese and appoint a moderate voice of moderation to oversee them while LA proper gets a shepherd that will clean house.

Haven't heard any rumors, thought I'd start my own...
I think Bp. Jaime Soto has to be one of the men considered. His age, 54, may work against him; Cdl. Mahony's reign was long, and the Holy See may not want to follow up with as potentially long a reign for his immediate successor. L.A. Auxiliary Bp. Ed Clark is the right age, and Rocco Palma hints he might have the inside track. Denver Archbp. Chaput is the right age and may be an interesting ethnic fit; it's a sideways move, though, and I wonder if he'd accept if asked...

Dear Anonymous 11:14 p.m.,

Thank you for your very thorough list of possible successors for the Archdiocese of Los Angeles.

Your "Please Oh Please Let it Be One of These" category is a good one! Let's keep praying for a great appointment for ole L.A.

I have not heard much...

I don't think it will be Bp's Soto or Cordileone. They have not been at their dioceses long enough and it would be much tension to move them so quickly.

I'd like to see either Bp. Olmstead, Abp Gomez, or a few of my priest friends.

I'm praying for a good Shepard to be sent to us here in LA. The reign of Liturgical Abuse has been long enough.

Dear Joe of St. Therese,

You make good points about Bishop Soto and Bishop Cordileone being pretty recent appointees.

Let's all keep praying for a great successor!
