A few weeks ago we were discussing the fate of former A's outfielder Mitchell Page, the Hitting Rage.
He was the Cardinals' hitting coach for the last 3 seasons but was let go after the World Series. Page was fired because of his alcoholism, and a number of us were concerned about his future.
I noticed in this morning's transactions listing in the newspaper that he's been hired by the Nationals as a "hitting coordinator," which I think means a roving hitting instructor.
Here is the story. Good to see him catching on so fast with another team and dealing so responsibly with his alcoholism.
