Good call, IMHO. He knows how Torre likes to manage, and played with a handful of the guys on the field in the championship years. This should be a good fit. And he'll be catching instructor too, and as Posada could tell you, he makes a pretty solid mentor.
But Stottlemyre? I'm not sure, given how unhappy he's been in the past couple years. Still, probably a better call than Neil Allen, and it's not as though they could get Guidry to leave the bayou.
It unfortunately means that Bob Uecker must wait yet again. Given all the bitching about Uecker not being in the Hall in Milwaukee, yet a deserving announcer like Kalas making it, I wish I knew who else is out there that ought to be in, but isn't.
