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.
I'm astounded that something like this can even happen. Weaver, Arredondo hold Dodgers hitless, but Angels still lose The sad part of this is that this technically isn't a no-hitter for Weaver, since he got pulled for a pinch-hitter.
