    I've been to dinner at Jimmy Buffet's house, and I've eaten it at a homeless shelter. And there's great joy and harrowing terror to be found in both places.

    At least the Reds did something right back in the mid 80s when it came to drafting.

    Where's this guy been recently? That article seemed lacking where his coaching resume is concerned

    In 2001 and 2002, Wakamatsu was a roving catching instructor in the Anaheim Angels organization. From 2003 to 2006, he was the Texas Rangers' bench coach. During the 2006 season, he served as manager for two games while Buck Showalter was in the hospital with an irregular heartbeat brought about due to dehydration, and in 2007, took the third base coach job when Ron Washington took over as manager.

    In 2008 Wakamatsu was the bench coach of the Oakland Athletics. He also has served in the Arizona Diamondbacks, Cleveland Indians, Seattle Mariners and Chicago Cubs organizations, and was a candidate for the head coaching positions in Oakland and Texas in 2006.

    Oops- I meant I bet he speaks more Asian, not African. Well, it seemed funny when I posted it...
