He's Back...

Say hello to the Philadelphia Phillies new bench coach, who will serve under manager Ryne Sandberg.  He might seem a bit fimiliar.

That's right ladies and gentlemen, that red-assed little prick Larry Bowa is back! Can't wait to see him rip into Rollins for 4 infield pop-up outs in one game.

Sandberg and Bowa are reunited for the first time since they were both traded to the Cubs back in 1982 by the dimwitted Phillies.

I mean, well, hey. With 30,000+ of us cussing them out every home game, why not let Larry at 'em?

SirAlden said...

A little harsh, but I agree.

Charlie Manuel's team played way above their Pythagorian W-L (6 extra wins),
Ryne Sandberg's team played way below their Pythagorian W-L losing more.

Someone has to tell Jimmy to modify his game as he ages, maybe that will be the little rooster.

Not a good move.

Pete Mackanin is also coming back evidently to coach Third Base.

If Jimmy hasn't learned it after 10+ years, then I think there will be a time or 2 that we will see it. Bowa also had a winning record but Wade was the reason for them not getting into playoffs. He would put together a good team but not an exceptional team

SirAlden- the team tanked it the final couple weeks of the season. Completely gave up.

I'm not sure how I feel about Bowa returning.

I do like the re-addition of Mackanin though.

GM-Carson said...

Looks like Manuel might come back as a special adviser too.

SirAlden said...

Mackanin is great if he is not hired to manage Seattle.

The point I was making was that Cholly was doing above the expected W-L.

Letting Cholly go was bush league,
I do understand that he would not play Rookies so we got to see what Asche and Ruf are...

Useful but not 1st Division Regulars.

I hope we see Maikel Franco (Right Handed Power Bat) 3rd baseman soon.

Bob D said...

If we see Franco at 3rd Base it would likely mean that Asche was traded. Asche looks like an exceptional 3rd baseman maybe along the lines of Scott Rollen.

Start lineup could include: Asche, Galvis, Ruf, Biddle, and maybe Revere....but that would be for the Marlins as Stanton would be in Philly....hmmm IDK that is a lot to give up. I remember a 5 for 1 trade way back when.

GM-Carson said...

I'm in favor of possibly promoting Franco this season if he's tearing up AAA, then turning Asche into a super-sub.

Bob D said...

Some say Asche could be a corner OF. If he could fill in at SS, 2B (he's played before), 1B maybe he could be that super sub.

GM-Carson said...

Asche doesn't have power, so he'll need to keep that average high and take some walks to hold true value on offense. Not something I'm sure he'll develop into.

Bob D said...

IDK about, but Asche actually reminds me of Utley a lot in hitting, hustle, demeanor, etc...
Will that translate into success????
