Not a glitzy name, but he caught ol' Charlie back in the day. I hope that he does well.

Who? I'm surprised that they didn't give Yost a look. He's got ties to the GM I think and did a good job turning the Brewers around.

I think this signals he will be with us for a long time. I really thought the M's were going to give him a shot. Too bad.

Wonderful.

I don't mind Cora on the bench. He was a terrible third base coach, but, meh...he's not the problem on the coaching staff.

I was at one of those 18 games Don Wakamatsu played for the White Sox. Because when Gene Honda announced his name, my reaction was Don Wakawho?

Congrats to Don on being the first Asian-American manager in the MLB. He's gonna have his work cut out for him in Seattle.
