If Ozzie Guillen is let go from the Marlins, I would like to see one of the following things happen:
- The Red Sox hire him to be their manager, because my gosh that would be a lot of fun;
- NBC Sports Network hire him to be a full-time baseball pundit on NBC SportsTalk. I’d probably pay NBC to fly me here to Stamford to do the show if Ozzie was around; or
- Short of that, NBC allowing me to hire Ozzie as a HardballTalk contributor. We’d let him answer reader email and tweets and stuff in an “Ask Dr. Ozzie” feature, much like the “Ask Dr. Ozzy” thing that “Rolling Stone” runs.
People gotta make this happen.
Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports reports that Dodgers shortstop Corey Seager will be on the team’s World Series roster.
Seager, 23, played in the NLDS but was left off the NLCS roster due to a lower back injury suffered in Game 3 against the Diamondbacks. He had three hits, including a triple, in 15 plate appearances in that series. During the regular season, Seager hit .295/.375/.479 with 22 home runs, 77 RBI, and 85 runs scored across 613 PA.
Charlie Culberson and Chris Taylor handled shortstop while Seager was absent. Both players were among the Dodgers’ best performers in the NLCS. With Seager back in the fold, Taylor will play mostly center field and Culberson will return to his bench role.
