A small clip from the Star-Ledger of New Jersey, had an article in the August 28, 2006 edition, starting in this way:
Jersey archbishop in line to fill vacancy in Detroit

Once Pope Benedict returns to Vatican City from a trip to his native Germany next month, he faces important decisions that will affect millions of Catholics: how to fill archbishop vacancies in Detroit and Baltimore, where archbishops traditionally become cardinals.
New Jersey's Catholics have good reason to follow his decisions: Newark Archbishop John J. Myers, the highest-ranked Catholic clergyman in the state since 2001, is rumored to be the favorite for Detroit's opening. The Vatican tries to keep its appointments under wraps, though expected vacancies always fuel speculation among priests and within the Catholic community. Adding to the uncertainty is the pope's ultimate discretion in a process that includes input from the papal ambassador to the United States and the Vatican's Congregation for Bishops.
Nobody who knows whether Myers is among the three finalists -- or whether the selection process has even reached that point -- will speak publicly about it. Myers declined to be interviewed about it.

Answer to the question? We'll have to wait and see. The Vatican will probably pick a good man that no one is speculating about in order to teach us all a lesson: Stop speculating and just pray that the Holy Spirit guides the Holy See to give us the man GOD wants in this position.
It's a worthy thing to be offering adoration time, mass intentions, rosaries and many other prayers for.
