Or as I’ll probably end up calling him, Runnin’ (Into Outs) Ron Roenicke!
By all accounts, he sounds like a good character guy. He sounds like he’ll make more of an effort to build some sort of relationship with the players than Macha did, which can’t be a bad thing. And again, I won’t say anything definitive until he’s actually managed some games. Still, these are real, actual quotes that sure have me worried:
You guys are going to be asking “Why are you getting thrown out so much?”
“I guarantee we’re going to score more runs by being aggressive.” (And also make more outs.)
“I wanted to be more aggressive [than Scioscia].”
