For those who wanted to know -- here's the latest on Wally from the Diamondbacks' site:


PHOENIX -- The Diamondbacks on Wednesday hired former big leaguer Wally Backman as manager of their Class A Lancaster affiliate, the JetHawks.

There is more in the articles but this is the gist of it.

The Diamondbacks are quickly becoming an organization of refuge for White Sox rejects.

I once attended a fair number of Jet Hawks games. Its basically due north, just over 40 miles, of LA.

Best of Luck to the best minor league manager in the White Sox system.

I would disagree with that statement.

Daver -- thanks. The Warthogs were 54 wins and 86 loses in 2001 with Wally at the helm.
