Yep. Ozzie & Jeff Torborg are pretty tight.

Torborg's the man. How can you not like a guy who wrote a master's thesis on platooning in baseball? Best Sox manager in the last 20 years. Educated, classy guy who was respected by his team.

Maybe 2nd best, I'd still take Tony LaRussa.

Or for that matter, Terry Bevington? That man knows baseball.

Why do we have Bruce Kimm if Ozzie was lookin for a spot to coach. I would love to see him in a sox jersey again.

I think Ozzie had a job secure in Florida since he was with Torborg in Montreal last year.

Comes down to politics. Manual and Kimm were buddies and roommates from back in the day. Although I liked Ozzie as a player and leader on the Sox, I have a feeling Kimm might actually be the better coach.

Think with your head rather than your heart.

Actually, Ozzie and Torborg were both in Montreal in 2001. They came to Florida in 2002 along with their owner, Loria.

Um, this is the same Jeff Torborg that's systematically destroying every arm on the Marlins, right?
