    You mean because they already had a manager?
    Yeah, that is unusual

    Cubs fans can look forward to getting to the playoffs with Counsell.  They can also look forward to CC adding a Jesse Winker type player to the playoff roster (who hadn't had a hit since July) and putting him critical situations on multiple nights so he can poop in his pants.
    I believe they would have made the playoffs if Ross had stayed. I believe he saw the Cubs getting better and their players probably have more potential. Probably doesn't think the Brewers will get any better

    Looks like he's trending down. Gonna be 31. Don't know if he has another gear. He's the type of player the Marlins would sign when Mattingly was the manager.

    I thought they loved Rossy. Plus, they paid Counsell as if he was Bruce Bochy...

    Ron Washington to Angels.
    Could they have not found someone older?  😕

    That was a self report, if I recall.
    Wash seems a good dude...players love him.  I think the Angels need an ass kicker, not a friend.

    Wash was great for the Braves, especially developing the young infielders. I hate to see him leave.

    Agree on his excellence at training fielders.  What he is known for.
    Hope he does well.
    (Just think they need a different type)

    Why does Craig Counsell always look like a little boy wearing his dad's hat? I've spent a decade loathing this dude, now I gotta like him all of a sudden.

    Agree.  I hated Harbaugh before he was coach of the Niners, hated him during, hate him now.  
    You can do it!

    OMG….the Giants hired Pat Burrell as their hitting coach. I remember Pat going….literally…oh for the 2010 World Series. 11 strikeouts in 13 AB’s. That’s our new hitting coach :face_palm:

    Espada going into a cushy job as Astros newest manager for his first try. Other than Boone and Davjd Roberts. Who else walked into a good situation for their first time as manager?

    Alex Cora with the Red Sox in 2018 is one that comes to mind in recent years. Team was coming off back-to-back playoff appearances when he got the job.

    I thought Dusty had a cake walk.  He just had to deal w the cheating thing but had a built team already.

    looking at baseball reference, it looks like he was kind of a beast for two years. he never hit for average….and now he’s a hitting coach. SMH.

    Most hitting coaches were never great hitters. Yankees had a guy I believe who never played

    Well he could hit a long ball.  He did have 10+ years o 20 or more and like I said, two beast years.

    Dude was a highly touted rc coming in.  Big rc class that year, Hamilton, Soriano, Dunn, Pena and Crawford among others.

    He's co-hitting coach. So maybe he'll work on how to hit homeruns and strikeout
