What do you think of this - Tony La Russa is going back to manage the White Sox where he started his managerial career! Article from mlb.com

I was pretty surprised. I think he wanted to lay low for awhile but it's been almost 10 years since he left on field managing. I wonder how well he can relate to the players now.

And Alex Cora is back with the Red Sox, as well!

It's crazy, to me, that both managers implicated in cheating scandals can be re-hired within one year of their dismissals! Evil or Very Mad

Perry Minasian has been hired as the Angels' new general manager on a four-year contract. He was formerly assistant GM with the Braves.

I don't know too much about him, but I hope he's able to get them back on track.

Have you heard about Kim Ng? It was announced today that she's the new GM for the Marlins. It's pretty nice to see her finally get a top job.

I'm very happy for her! You would have to go back 15 years in this forum to find the posts I made about hearing her speak in 2005! Smile

I think I'll start a new thread noting the significance of this barrier breaker!

Peter Seidler has assumed control of my Padres - article from padres.com

I feel very good about the future of the franchise.

Yes, I saw that.

Theo Epstein has also left the Cubs.

I was surprised to see a familiar old name when Chris Young was named the Rangers' GM. I really liked him a lot.

Yes, I did see that last weekend. But guess what--I thought at first it was "the other" Chris Young! It was probably because of the focus this year on diversity and blacks in management positions in sports. Either way, I'm sure the other one will do fine!

Thanks for covering me there, Sunny. Meanwhile, the Mets have hired Jared Porter as their general manager.

I see where the Padres have lost one to the Mets.

Tony Tarasco has been hired as their new first base coach.

The above-linked article notes that "Tarasco replaces Tony DeFrancesco, whom the Mets reassigned to another position in the organization."

Yes, farewell to Tony and meanwhile speaking of the Mets, they have fired their GM! - Jared Porter. It was for past inappropriate behavior when he worked for the Cubs. I have to say I am shocked since it did not happen on their watch. Reading what happened though, was pretty disgusting. Article from mlb.com linked here

Yes, beyond just inappropriate. However, it does make me wonder at what point in time does the line get drawn? In no way would I suggest he remain if he were still with the Cubs. But it appears he had already apologized earlier. It's just a little confusing to me. I do understand teams wanting to maintain integrity, and I wish some would do more in that regard.

My Padres have announced that Bobby Dickerson is their new 3rd base coach, replacing Glenn Hoffman. That is in addition to serving as bench coach - article from padres.com

As pitchers and catchers report, the Angels have announced that as a temporary measure, Matt Wise will serve as interim pitching coach.

This is curious--the Mets fired hitting performance coordinator Ryan Ellis following sexual harassment charges by several female Mets employees dating back to 2018. I only say "curious" because Ellis was dismissed rather quietly compared to the well-publicized firing of their GM Jared Porter.

Of course, the position doesn't carry quite as much weight, so maybe it's not that curious after all.

Unreported (by me) until now, the Mariners' GM resigned earlier this week. I'm going to start a separate thread about that soon.

New part-owners in teams, from stars of other sports:

Lebron James, for the Red Sox. WTF, LBJ? Shocked
