lols there's a name i haven't heard in years
Wasn't he a teammate of Gabe Kapler at Tampa when they went to the World Series?
good to hear. its a shame his career got essentially ended after 2 years because of his illness
his only 2 full seasons were at 21 and 22...hit .289 and .280, combined 27 HR, 152 RBI, 44 SB and 5.9 WAR
I remember watching this guy (along with Josh Hamilton, Carl Crawford and several others) in A ball when I was a kid. I even have one of his minor league cards signed somewhere at my parent's house.
Kinda crazy he's a manager now.
They were teammates but 2 years after they went to the WS (2010 season).
I remember when he played for the rays but I am surprised he is managing already
Does he have experience
Too bad manager hirings are only half way over. I keep getting sad thinking about how we could’ve hired one of these guys and not Brad ****ing Ausmus
God damn, I feel so old.
So I guess you could call this “Rocco’s Modern Life”.
Good for him, guy's a yr. older than me. So you know you're getting older when guys a yr. older than you are becoming MLB managers.
I remember he hurt himself playing wiffleball and was out an entire year.
Been coaching since he retired. Spent some time with Rays minor league teams and last 4 years with Rays.
Haha, what a terrible ****ing team
brb... checking to see if this is true...
I saw on Twitter that it isn't.
Edit: I just looked through all of the right fielders. He is not in the game. So that is fake.
Edit 2: Kevin Cash!
Edit 3: I just played a game with that team (with Kevin Cash replacing Gabe Kapler, who isn't in the game). I had nine hits (all singles) and scored only one run. Granted, it was my first game in awhile, but man, that team sucked. I won 1-0.
That team is 20 losses worse than the current Orioles. Alex Cora as a clean-up hitter
