Melvin out in Arizona, A.J Hinch in!

ESPN is reporting that the Arizona Diamondbacks have fired manager Bob Melvin. The Diamondbacks will replace Melvin with 34 year old former Oakland A's catcher A.J. Hinch. Hinch was the V.P. of player development for the Diamondbacks prior to his promotion which is due to be announced by the team in Friday.

At least the former friend, and maybe current friend, of former AL Rookie of the year Ben Grieve is doing well for himself in baseball, unlike Ben Grieve. I am glad to see that A.J. is doing well for himself. I was just looking through the story and man, it sure seems like Arizona is having some offensive problems that would rival ours. Eric Byrnes is hitting .139.

 Onto the A's, I keep hearing the famous tag line, maybe this will be the day that gets us going. How many games do we play where we hear this and it never materializes, but hey here's to hoping that today is the one that gets us going. Let's Go A's!!
