I certainly think a major reason for this is to have Konkero there to keep the clubhouse in order, especially in losing streaks or when Ventura makes a boneheaded decision, or to perhaps talk him off something silly before it's too late.
He very well may be there to take over. But I'd sure like him to put 3-4 years in the minors or on anther team's bench first.
