Charlie (and Dave and Neil and Mike) Return

Charlie Montoyo oversees umpires overseeing grounds crew fixing the mound in the middle of a day game, June 6, 2011

Great news for Bulls fans as veteran manager Charlie Montoyo returns to Durham and brings his whole staff with him. While we here at WDBB will occasionally disagree with him on a tactical decision, Charlie is unquestionably one of the premier managers in AAA baseball.

We get all twitchy every time the Rays bench coach goes off somewhere for an interview, because we worry that Charlie might go to the bigs and leave Durham.

On the other hand, he’s been grooming players for a very successful Rays franchise for a long time. So maybe they are smart to keep him here.

We certainly can’t argue with his record as manager and we have seen more than a few games where he simply out-managed a Bulls opponent in the later part of a game.

Welcome back!

[You too, Samantha!]

Now, lets see if the Rays give him more to work with this year than they did last year...
