Bud Black New Padres Manager

Bud Black will be introduced as the new Padres manager at the team's banquet on Thursday night. If Black had to leave the team, at least he went to the Padres. Our boy over at Minor League Town had better appreciate this.

Add pitching coach to the list of the Angels need this winter. The club is rumored to be in the market for Sarge Junior (Gary Matthews) to play center and Barry Zito, then dealing Ervin Santana and Chone Figgins away. This comes on the heels of Adam Kennedy's release and Howie Kendrick moving to second base full time. Any other thoughts on the Angels moves? Talk about it in The Hater Nation Forums.

I think this may have been the best decision San Diego has made in a while. Though I'm curious if Bud will manage aggressively like Scioscia, the Pads are in good hands though...I'm not really sure what to make of Bynum this season, I guess I'm waiting for reality to set in...

Thanks for the plug.
We don't mean to interrupt the Bud lovefest, but Dusty Baker would've been so much more entertaining for us.

Black will do well. He's a good bench coach and the Padres will be agressive.
