After 12 years as manager and nearly 24 years after his debut as a player with the team, Bruce Bochy is leaving the San Diego Padres to manage the San Francisco Giants.
Excuse me while I emit a very long primal scream.
This is a tragedy much closer to home than the Tigers' loss to the Cards last night, so it's hard for me to get worked up about St. Louis closing in on the big win. Detroit may have its woes, but it doesn't have to worry about losing an ace manager.
I agree with Trevor Hoffman: "The bottom line is disappointment." There go the next 5 years, Padres fans.
