Baseball Prospectus’ Will Carroll is a Twitter tease:
I know of two
HUGE announcements coming at the Winter Meetings. I expect both will be
bigger than any player signing or news made during.
Best guesses in the comments. Here’s mine: they’re going to four outs. You know, because it’s one better than three.
Bruce Bochy just told reporters at spring training in Scottsdale that he plans to retire following the 2019 season.
This will be Bochy’s 25th year as a big league manager. He managed the Padres from 1995 through 2006 and took the Giants over in 2007. He has, obviously, led them to three World Series titles, in 2010, 2012 and 2014. For his career he has a record of 1926-1944.
He will likely be inducted into the Hall of Fame at his first opportunity.
