The ball is juiced. Just heard him talking about holding a baseball and noticing how it felt like a rock and that he couldn't move the seams like he could in the past. He thinks MLB is juicing the ball because it can't juice the players.
Chances are, Bobby is in his final couple of years. Who are some candidates to be his successors?
Off the top of my head, the names I think of are Terry Pendleton, Brian Snitker, Glenn Hubbard and Ned Yost.
With the firing of Sam Perlazzo from the Orioles today, Leo Mazzone's status is up in the air. He left Atlanta specifically to work for his best friend since childhood. Think he'd be interested in getting his old job back?
Sounds like Wickman will assume his old job starting today.
Not really surprising news. Hopefully Wickman will once again be able to find the strike zone.
