Bochy out with Padres, in with Cubs? PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Friday, 13 October 2006 03:19

Bruce BochyWhile there has been talk of Joe Girardi and Lou Piniella, the man that may jump to the front of the candidates for the Cubs managerial opening is still employed.

There have been several reports that Padres manager Bruce Bochy is being granted permission to talk to other clubs, with the Cubs being one club that has requested contact with Bochy. Bochy has managed the Padres to back-to-back National League West titles.

This entry on The Biz of Baseball comes with question marks as the article reports:

It has appeared Piniella is the front-runner, but Bochy's possible availability has slowed that talk. One source said the Cubs were hedging a decision until they checked further into the Bochy situation, citing Hendry's reported effort to interview Bochy in 2002 before settling on Dusty Baker.

Adding further to the new scenario Thursday was a report on foxsports.com that the Padres would grant permission for Bochy to talk with other clubs, even though his team just won back-to-back National League West titles and he has a year remaining on his contract at $1.9 million. Bochy, 51, has a .494 winning percentage in 12 seasons.

The report could not be confirmed. It is not even known if another club has contacted the Padres because Bochy's most logical landing place would be with the Cubs. And sources insist the Cubs had not contacted the Padres as of Thursday evening.

Dodgers' VP of Scouting Quits PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Friday, 13 October 2006 01:27

DodgersRoy Smith, the Dodgers' vice-president of scouting and player development resigned yesterday. Smith was hired before the start of the 2004 season by Paul DePodesta, and Smith cited uncertainty over his role with the new regime under new GM Ned Colletti. The resignation was not forced.

As reported:

 "We sat and talked and it was the time to do it," Smith said. "I felt like I needed a change. The way things were going, not that it's wrong, but personally I felt it was time to move on.

"There were a lot of reasons. Ned was fine. He was great with me and we had a respectful talk."

Colletti said he was surprised by Smith's departure and does not plan to hire a replacement soon, if at all.

"I believed our relationship was solid," he said. "A lot of what we accomplished, Roy was part of. I'm sad, but I can understand it."

Smith was assistant general manager of the Pittsburgh Pirates from 1999 to 2004 and pitched in the majors for eight seasons.

Are MLB Radar Guns Juiced? PDF Print E-mail

Written by The Staff

Are the radar guns used for the Division Series and League Champinship Series "Juiced"? Some scouts, and at least one high profile former manager thinks so.

New York Mets scout Bob Johnson, who was at Game 1 of the ALCS in Oakland laughed out loud when looking at the reading from the gun displayed on the scoreboard while A's reliever Joe Kennedy was in the game.

"That gun had to be soaked in greenies," Johnson says. "There was not a chance he was throwing 97. He tops out at 93 mph. He's never thrown that hard in his life.

"Fans love velocity, but when you see some of these numbers, especially the screwy ones late in the game, all you can do is laugh."

Lou Piniella, who is working for Fox as an analyst in the postseason, questioned the readings during the Game 1 broadcast and continued to mock it the next day.

"I haven't been in the dugout for a while," Piniella says, "but I don't remember all these guys throwing in the high 90s. I mean, it's good to see these guys throwing 100, but are they really throwing 100?"

As reported:

Scouts are convinced relievers Zumaya and Wagner legitimately hit 100 mph on the radar gun, but perhaps no one else. Zumaya was clocked at 103 mph on the Fox gun Tuesday night, but Johnson's radar gun had him at 101.

"It's getting ridiculous what they're coming up with now," says Randy Johnson, special assistant to A's general manager Billy Beane. "It's like when the (scoreboard) gun readings had Kenny Rogers at 94. Come on, that can't be right.

"He's maybe touched 90 a handful of times the last five years, so there's no way he's throwing that hard at the age of 41. It's not just him, but everyone. ... Maybe these radar guns are on steroids."

Tinnish, a 30-year-old native of Hamilton joins Scouting Director, Jon Lalonde, to form the first all Canadian tandem to lead the Blue Jays Scouting Department in club history. The Brock University graduate has been a member of the Toronto Blue Jays Scouting Department since 2002, starting as an Assistant in Baseball Operations.

He played one year of professional baseball before serving as an Assistant Coach and Recruiting Coordinator for his alma mater, Southern University, in Baton Rouge, La. He was promoted to the position of Assistant Director of Player Development for the Atlanta Braves after spending nine years as an Area Scout, responsible for covering Georgia, Florida and his home country.

Girardi Interviews with Nationals for Second Time PDF Print E-mail
Written by The Staff   
Thursday, 12 October 2006 02:46

Joe GirardiJoe Girardi has interviewed for a second time with the Washington Nationals. The report indicates that the Nationals are serious about the former Florida Marlin manager as a replacement for the departed Frank Robinson.

As reported:

Girardi also is a candidate to manage the Chicago Cubs, a team for which he played catcher. His Chicago ties are strong -- he was born in Peoria, Ill., and played at Northwestern -- and if the Nationals want to hire him, they could end up in a tug of war with the Cubs, who would like to wrap up their hiring process by the end of next week.

The Nationals have offered no timetable to make a hire since the search began, and General Manager Jim Bowden and President Stan Kasten remain mum on the process.

Girardi was recently voted The Sporting News NL Manager of the Year by his fellow National League manager peers.

Ron Washington to Interview with Rangers PDF Print E-mail

Thursday, 12 October 2006 01:16

Ron WashingtonOakland A's third base coach Ron Washington will be interviewing for the managerial opening with the Texas Rangers. Washington is considered to be one of four finalists for the position.

As reported:

A's general manager Billy Beane said after Game 2 of the American League Championship Series that he's talked to Rangers GM Jon Daniels and granted permission for them to speak with Washington, but no interview date had been set.

Washington interviewed last year for the Florida Marlins opening and the A's brief opening, before Ken Macha was rehired.

Macha and numerous A's players have consistently lobbied for Washington and raved about what a great manager he would make.

But they've also acknowledged what a huge blow it would be for the organization because he's been so instrumental in making poor infielders adequate, good infielders great, and great infielders the best.

"I don't care where he goes, Wash deserves a shot," injured second baseman Mark Ellis said. "I'm just glad he's getting an opportunity. Obviously, we'd like it to be somewhere else, so we don't have to face him. But for him to get a shot anywhere is exciting. I know he's going to interview well. I hope he gets the job.

He deserves it, and hopefully he'll get it."
