Bochy agrees to become Giants manager PDF Print E-mail

Written by The Staff   
Friday, 27 October 2006 01:08

BochyBruce Bochy has agreed in principle to take the managerial vacancy with the Giants. A 1:00 PM press conference is scheduled in San Francisco.

The agreement took all of one day and was reached before Bochy had to leave Monday to manage the Japan All-Star tour.

As reported:

Bochy was the only candidate with major league managerial experience, something Giants general manager Brian Sabean said would be preferred. Mets third-base coach Manny Acta, Angels pitching coach Bud Black and Giants bench coach Ron Wotus also interviewed for the job.

The Giants received permission from the Padres on Wednesday to talk to Bochy, who traveled to the Bay Area earlier Thursday to meet with Sabean and other team officials about becoming Felipe Alou's successor.

"If he's available and that's a reality, we'd have to go forward and interview the man," Giants vice president of player personnel Dick Tidrow said earlier Thursday.

RangersClub announces appointments and promotions

Arlington, TX – Texas Rangers General Manager Jon Daniels announced today a number of appointments and promotions to the baseball operations and scouting departments of the organization.

Four people were hired and they include Don Welke who was named Senior Director, Baseball Operations, Kevin Bootay (West Coast Scouting Supervisor), Gary Rajsich (Professional Scout) and Mike Daly  Kip Fagg, who had served as the club’s West Coast Crosschecker has been promoted to National Crosschecker and Barbara Pappenfus, has been promoted to Executive Assistant to the General Manager. (Manager, Scouting Operations).

“I am pleased to welcome back Don Welke to our staff and delighted to add talented people like Kevin, Gary and Mike to our organization,” Daniels said.  “Kip and Barbara have done a great job for us in the past and their promotions are well deserved.”

Welke returns to the Texas organization after serving as a Special Assistant to Philadelphia General Manager Pat Gillick during the 2006 season.  He was the Rangers international cross-checker in 2005, during which time he assisted in re-establishing the organization’s presence in Latin America.  In his new position he will be a resource to Daniels and his staff in all areas of baseball operations. 

Welke, who has 42 years of baseball scouting experience, began his career with Cincinnati from 1965-69 and has also worked with Kansas City (1970-76), Toronto (1977-95), Baltimore (1996-99) and the Los Angeles Dodgers (1999-2004) before his time in Texas and Philadelphia.  Don was directly involved with signing such players as Dave Stieb, Pat Hentgen and John Olerud.  He has also worked as an advance scout for the gold medal-winning Team USA baseball squad at the 2000 Olympics in Sydney and again for the Team USA for the 2003 Olympic qualifier in Panama.

Bootay joins the Rangers from the Minnesota Twins where he was their area scout for northern and central California and Nevada (except for Las Vegas).  He was responsible for signing such players as pitcher Matt Garza who made 10 appearances for the Twins in 2006 as a rookie and helped them reach the playoffs.  He was originally drafted by the Rangers in the first round (11th overall) in the 1984 player draft.

Rajsich comes to Texas from the Boston Red Sox where he was a professional scout.  Prior to that, as an amateur scout, Gary signed such players as left-handed pitcher Jon Lester, Boston’s 2005 Minor League Pitcher of the Year.  The former outfielder played four seasons in the major leagues with the Mets, St. Louis and San Francisco from 1982-85.

Daly joins the Rangers from the Cleveland Indians where he worked in the front office for two years (2001-02) and as a midwest area scout from 2003-2006.  Mike is a graduate of Louisiana State, where he lettered twice and was a member of two National Championship teams during the period 1997-2000.

Fagg has been with the Rangers for 15 years and served as an area scout from 1992-2001 and has been the west coast supervisor since 2001.  Kip has signed such players as pitchers Rick Helling and Doug Davis.

Pappenfus began working in the baseball operations office in 2003 and most recently served as an administrative assistant in the department.

Rays financial break down against new CBA PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Wednesday, 25 October 2006 17:47

DRaysCarter Gaddis of the Tampa Tribune breaks down the finances of the Tampa Bay Devil Rays for the purposes of seeing how the new CBA will impact them. Rays president Matt Silverman mentions that it will most likely be some time before the club is profitable. "We expect to run losses for a couple of years as we try to nurse the business back to health," Silverman said. "We're in growth mode. So, you're willing to see cash losses. Hopefully, they diminish over time, and as you grow, it will help our top line [revenue] grow."

Carter reports that the club pulled in around $33 million in revenue sharing.

As reported:

[S]everal factors contributed to Tampa Bay's negative cash flow as the Stuart Sternberg ownership group replaced Vince Naimoli's regime a year ago this month:

• The team spent $10 million to renovate and improve Tropicana Field.

• About $8 million came due on deferred payments of contracts issued to long-departed players such as Greg Vaughn, and another $3 million was due former manager Lou Piniella ($2.2 million) and former general manager Chuck LaMar (about $800,000).

• The organization made a priority out of rebuilding the depleted scouting and player development departments, specifically opening an academy in Venezuela and agreeing to share the Dodgers' facility in the Dominican Republic.

The Rays intend to spend $6 million-$7 million to further enhance Tropicana Field (including a new video board, new artificial turf and additions to the exterior of the ballpark, which could include banners, artwork or lighting).

They also still will owe about $7 million in deferred salary in 2007; after that the books are clear.

The Biz of Baseball is also mentioned:

Maury Brown, editor of the Web site bizofbaseball.com, cited Selig's claim that 25 of 30 teams were profitable this season and said it's reasonable to believe that the Rays, who essentially were starting from scratch in terms of creating a foundation of player development and fan outreach, were one of the five franchises to lose money.

Brown, a former co-chair of the Society for American Baseball Research business of baseball committee, also pointed out that one key component of the new labor agreement is a revised definition of how revenue-sharing money should be spent by teams (such as the Rays) who receive those millions of dollars from other teams (such as the Yankees).

In theory, the money is supposed to be used to improve the product on the field.

"The question then becomes, 'What is defined as reinvesting the money into the on-field product?'" Brown said. "You could make an argument that spending it on items that help a team remain functional over a decent period of time, like player development, is doing that."

DelgadoAward Recognizes On-Field Excellence and Commitment to Community Service

Carlos Delgado of the New York Mets was named the 2006 recipient of the prestigious Roberto Clemente Award. Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig made the announcement today at a press conference prior to Game Three of the 2006 World Series at Busch Stadium in St. Louis, MO.

Carlos Delgado was selected from a list of 30 nominees, one from each Major League Club, and he joins a distinguished list of past recipients that includes 11 Baseball Hall of Famers. A panel of dignitaries including Commissioner Selig and Vera Clemente, wife of the late Roberto Clemente, selected the 2006 Roberto Clemente Award recipient.

Presented annually, the Roberto Clemente Award honors the Major League Baseball player who combines outstanding play on the field with devoted work in the community. Major League Baseball has presented this Award annually since 1971. In 1973, the Award was named in honor of Clemente, who died on December 31, 1972 during a humanitarian mission to assist earthquake victims in Nicaragua.

“On behalf of the entire baseball family, I am thrilled to present Carlos with this award that celebrates his commitment to the community,” said Baseball Commissioner Allan H. (Bud) Selig. “His work with youth in Puerto Rico and New York are wonderful examples of the positive influence the game can have on the lives of others.”

“My congratulations to Carlos Delgado on his selection as the recipient of the 2006 Roberto Clemente Award,” said Vera Clemente. “His performance on the field and dedication and commitment to the community truly embody the spirit of this Award.”

“As a California native, former player, and professional scout De Jon’s breadth of experience will add to the organization’s strength in developing talented players,” said Colletti. “He is strong on the fundamentals of the game and his ability to evaluate talent has led to a record of solid big league drafts and he will be a valuable addition to our team.”

Watson joins the Dodgers from the Cleveland Indians, where he was the Director of Professional Scouting for the past three seasons, working directly with General Manager Mark Shapiro on building the Major League roster through trades and free agent acquisitions.

Prior to joining the Indians, the Baldwin Hills, CA native served as the Reds’ Scouting Director from 1998-00, where more than 25 of his draft choices reached a Major League 40-man roster, including future big leaguers Adam Dunn and Austin Kearns. He moved to the professional scouting side with the Reds in 2001 and 2002.

“I am really excited about coming home,” said Watson. “Growing up in Los Angeles and knowing the history of one of the most storied franchises in all of sports, I’m truly looking forward to the chance to contribute and help the progression of the Dodger organization.”

Watson, 40, first began working in baseball in 1991 with the Florida Marlins following a five-year playing career in the Royals’ organization. He started as an area scout in Los Angeles and was a member of Florida ’s front office when the club won its first World Championship in 1997. A graduate of Santa Monica High School , Watson was as an outfielder/first baseman at West Los Angeles Community College , where he played for current Dodger scout Artie Harris and was a third-round draft choice of the Royals. He and his wife, Joal, reside in Ahwatukee , Arizona with their daughter, Mia and son, Michael.

Trammell named bench coach of Cubs PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Tuesday, 24 October 2006 01:26

TrammellFormer Detroit Tigers manager Alan Trammell has been named the new bench coach for the Chicago Cubs.

My wish was to get back on the field and Lou [Piniella] called me with this great opportunity," Trammell said. "This came together very quickly. I'm thrilled it did because Lou has had a lot of success and he's a good man."

Trammell's deal is a two-year contract and he replaces John McClaren, who opted to take on the same responsibilities under Mike Hargrove and the Mariners.

As reported:

Cubs general manager Jim Hendry said Trammell's "credentials on the field as a player, instructor and coach speak for themselves. He will be an invaluable person for Lou Piniella to lean on during the game and he brings a special expertise in working with our infielders."

Piniella has already named Larry Rothschild his pitching coach, and Triple-A Iowa manager Mike Quade is expected to join the Cubs as either first or third base coach. Piniella's next big hire will be his hitting coach. Among the potential candidates is former Yankees teammate Chris Chambliss, recently fired as the Reds' hitting coach.
