An off day, coaches, and the UFC
Took almost all of yesterday off. We could see coaching moves today. I think Dick Pole will be back, whether it's pitching coach or bench coach is the question. Brook Jacoby could be safe based on what Dusty Baker said about continuity. And really what hitter -- other than David Ross -- had a down year?
As for the others, I have no clue. Mark Berry would like to stay in the organization. That Double-A managing job is something he's done before.
Saturday, I'm covering the UFC 77. Are you in to it? I've become a fan. I never seen it in person. I did a Rich Franklin story last offseason. He's a great guy. He has a really tough fight in Anderson Silva. Their first fight was shocking in how Silva dominated.
I'm looking forward to covering it. Adam Dunn will be in town for it. Maybe he can stop by Bob Castellini's office and agree to three- or four-year deal while he's here.
