Hinch does not have any prior managerial experience at any level
I can't beleive no one has mentioned this yet. I don't know what shocks me more...the firing or the replacement with no manangerial experience!!!!
D-backs to replace Melvin with Hinch | MLB.com: News
Promoting the FARM DIRECTOR?
Are they throwing in the towel? With Manny out, they have a chance in the West. This makes no sense.
At the beginning of the year, I liked the Giants to win the NL West because of their starting rotation. I like them even more now.
The Giants are almost in the same boat as the D'backs, very good starting pitching with an anemic offense. The only real differences at this point is that Lincecum and Cain are both healthy while Webb is on the DL for the D'backs, and the Giants are more of a veteran team.
