I’m torn on this World Series preview from CBS Sports.com’s Larry Dobrow. On the one hand, it’s almost certainly a sharp-as-a-tack satire of every hack columnist’s “intangibles” analysis. On the other hand, it’s so spot-on that you just know people are going to link it without realizing it’s satire.
Heck, I wouldn’t be surprised if Buck and McCarver used it as the primary source for their game prep.
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.
