When will someone — somewhere — get through to this punk about what it means to respect the game? God.
I’m sure the kids would be just as into Gomez as they are if he never showed color, flair exuberance or style on the field. Kids just LOVE players who “go about their business the right way” and adhere to all of the rules.
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.
