Dodgers Exercise Option On Podsednik And Other Post-Series News
Also — perhaps not unexpectedly — Tim Wallach is no longer in the running for the Brewers' managerial job, and will return to the Dodgers in some capacity, most likely the team's third base coach.
Update: Looks like Angels bench coach Ron Roenicke has been tapped to run the Brewers.
Update 2: The Padres exercised Adrian Gonzalez' 2011 option for $5M. He'll be a free agent in 2012.
Update 3: Prescience:
So, having thrown open Logan White's horn of plenty in the pursuit of the one whale you might want to harpoon, and in face of the likelihood that [Brewers GM Doug] Melvin laughed off my offer [for Prince Fielder], you can ratchet down expectations and try trading Loney and Theriot to the Orioles for Luke Scott. Scott will be another arbitration case, so this isn't about saving money, but about making sure you're not putzing around with Xavier Paul or Garret Anderson or Scott Podsednik or the like in left field in 2011.Update 4: Davey Lopes might return to LA as a third base coach. Speculation at this point, but no surprise that it's being mooted.
Update 5: The numbers are in, and the 2010 World Series is tied for the lowest ratings ever — with the 2008 Rays/Phillies World Series.
