    Hopefully Nightengale's sources are rock solid. Won't officially be announced until tomorrow

    He's paid his dues here, and they've kept him on the crew through 3 different GM's and 2 different managers.

    Hopefully this means we will be back to an organization in which all levels are pulling the same direction. I don't expect a manager to be robotic in every single choice, but putting the best players on the field for a given game more often than not is not some unrealistic expectation.

    So much this. I'm cautiously optimistic that Espada will do this.

    I wonder if Omar Lopez gets promoted and gets Espada's spot or if they hire a new bench coach.

    Not my first choice but as long as he recognizes that Dusty was not someone he should he should try to emulate he will do fine.
