The San Francisco Giants cut ties with manager Felipe Alou on Monday, a day after the team finished its second straight losing season.
The change had been expected for some time, with the 71-year-old Alou's contract expiring. He said he would like to stay in baseball in 2007, possibly with the Giants, the franchise that signed him out of the Dominican Republic in 1955.
Wonder if Dusty is on their radar yet.
Oh, and sorry for misspelling his name in the title.
Dammit, I grew up watching Ivan Calderon. He was part of possibly my single favorite sports year ever (the 1990 White Sox) and always seemed like a good guy, even if he was a bit out there sometimes. This really sucks to hear.
