You know, I think, currently, we are in the most underrated phase of being a baseball fan. Sure, the playoffs are great, but I’m not sure there are many things more fun than reading about the managerial and coaching changes and the potential interviewees. Every day, you learn shocking things that bring a smile to your face. For instance, today I learned that Lee Tinsley is the D’backs outfield instructor and is in line to become their first base coach. Lee Tinsley!
Watching the coaching carousel take place brings back memories. Did you know Torey Luvullo is one of the better young managerial prospects in the game and has an interview for the Dodgers opening? Or that Mickey Brantley is a hitting instructor in the Mets organization? I mean, when I think Mickey Brantley, I think disciplined hitting.
Those who can’t, teach, right?
