It’s day one of the off season, and there are just a few updates I gotta tell you about involving manager and coach personnel.  No… Joe Girardi did not get fired. Many believe he should be, but to be honest, he shouldn’t be… but that’s another post for another time.

The Rockies manager Walt Weiss:  First off, if you aren’t familiar with Walt, he’s the manager of the Rockies and he’s been there for 4 years. Well, Weiss stepped down as manager.  ESPN writes:

Walt Weiss made his way around Coors Field on Sunday to say so long to the Colorado Rockies fans for the season.

Turns out, his farewell was for good, too.

Weiss is out as Rockies manager after four seasons in charge. In a statement Monday, the team said Weiss has decided to step down.”

The Diamondbacks Dave Stewart, Tony LaRussa and manager Chip Hale: Stewart was the GM for the Diamondbacks… Hale was the manager.  Well, both were fired.  According to AZCentral.com:

“The Diamondbacks, fresh off perhaps the most disappointing season in club history, cleaned house on Monday, firing General Manager Dave Stewart and manager Chip Hale and seemingly doing the same with Tony La Russa…

La Russa, a Hall of Fame manager, had never worked in a front office before the Diamondbacks put him atop their baseball operations department in May 2014. Four months later, the club hired Stewart, who hadn’t worked as an executive for 13 years.”

The Marlins coach Barry Bonds: Bonds is gone.

USA Today writes: ” Barry Bonds will be fired after just one season as Miami Marlins hitting coach…”

A few big names, a few teams looking to change gears.  You gotta love that.  It’s the baseball off season… and it’s here for crying out loud!
