    Yeah, you're suppose to post the entire article. (That's what I was told at least when I did my spring training series.

    Links to your own site are allowed in your signature, I believe. You're also welcome to post entire articles so long as its your own stuff. As for linking articles from other sites, there's supposed to be a two-sentence limit if I understand everything correctly.

    Thanks guys for the clarification. I think we're fortunate to have someone in Pensacola already contributing. Look forward to reading his posts.

    That is crazy! Man did he make a boneheaded decision to walk away from the Nationals last year. He let his ego overtake his brain. That said, for a Double-A manager, it doesn't get much better than this. Nice moooove, from the Wahoos.

    Pensacola is really shaping up to be a nice minor league affiliate. Experienced former major-league manager, impressive crop arriving from Dayton soon, new state-of-the-art stadium. Louisville and Dayton are already top-flight affiliates, and hopefully this will join them.

    Now if only we can get Bakersfield off the ground...

    A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.

    Please note that roster is not accurate.

    It looks pretty much like a cut and paste of the final Carolina roster.

    My guess is Jocketty et al are waiting to offer an older player or two who don't get camp invites this year and are willing to consider going right into coaching.

    Usually new coaches get their start in coaching at the rookie levels. I would be VERY surprised if a brand new coach winds up at the AA level.

    I bet Corky Miller's 1st coaching job is AA. Maybe High A

    I also expect to see him managing in the big leagues within 10 years.

    Plently of guys have gone straight to the majors as managers, Matheny and Girardi are some recent example, A.J. Hinch is a good example as well, since he was not a big name player. People have been talking about how Corky Miller will be a great manager for years, I see no reason he could not jump to AA or AAA at least with his first job. I always assumed he would be the guy to follow Rick Sweet, but I would not be surprised at all if he became hitting coach in AA, with the brand new team and former major league manager to learn from.
