Angels Name Bill Mosiello Kernels Manager
The Angels tapped Bill Moiello to manage the Kernels in the wake of minor league field coordinator Bruce Hines leaving the organization to become the Mariners' third-base coach. The Angels also promoted Eric Owens to a roving instructor position.
I don't know what Eric Owens will be coaching, but hopefully it is not batting. He was listed on the Travs website as "batting coach", which was most appropriate because he was a failure as a hitting coach - lowest team batting average, lowest team on-base percentage, and the team overall was just terribly inept at attempting to bunt. He was as poor at coaching hitting as Mags was at coaching baserunning.....the Travs would be better off with both of them elsewhere. And, lest I miss an opportunity, Mags was not responsible for the Texas League Championship last year - the guys won it in spite of him and not because of him.
