I'm guessing he doesn't get to pick his pitching coach.

Good for Ron. Kinda bittersweet, we'll be seeing him a ton over the next few years. He's not going to have much to work with over the next year or two, I wonder if he's kind of a "placeholder"?They must feel he's a good manager to work with young players.

He's good at throwing young players under the bus.

I fully expect their #3 catcher to be playing in the outfield. 

And there will be no pressure on him to do well in the playoffs since the Tiggers are in full rebuild mode.
