Prospectus Q&A: Bob Melvin

0

David Laurila

The Diamondbacks' manager talks about learning from the masters.

Seven months after being named the 2007 National League Manager of the Year, Bob Melvin once again has the Diamondbacks in position to advance to the postseason. Melvin is also poised to become the winningest manager in franchise history, surpassing Bob Brenly, for whom he served as the team's bench coach in 2001 and 2002, later this season. A catcher during his playing days, Melvin saw action for seven teams over 10 seasons, learning from managers such as Sparky Anderson, Roger Craig, and Frank Robinson. Now 47 years old, Melvin is in his fourth year at the helm in Arizona after skippering the Mariners in 2003 and 2004. Melvin talked about his managerial style during Arizona's visit to Fenway Park in late June.

The Daily Prospectus: Ten Days, One Column

0

Joe Sheehan

Last Tuesday night around 9 p.m., my mother asked me how I was planning to write about the All-Star Game if I wasn't watching it. I told her that I wasn't writing my column while away, and that I wouldn't write about the All-Star Game when I returned because no one cared about the All-Star Game past about 10:30 a.m. the next day. You can't make this stuff up, folks.

True story #1:

I've spent most of the evening exchanging e-mails with my BP colleagues, e-mails with subject lines like "Silliness" and "Bob Brenly is an idiot."

Playoff Prospectus

Christina Kahrl

That kvetching aside, the NLCS should be a great matchup. Not surprisingly for one of the nation's grayest of retiree nirvanas, the Arizona Diamondbacks feature all sorts of people with past histories, and among this group, that involves plenty of postseason fun. Luis Gonzalez, Jay Bell, Mark Grace, and Matt Williams have all enjoyed the privilege of losing to the Braves in a postseason series, while Curt Schilling and Steve Finley are among the happy non-Yankee few who can remember beating them. When you assemble a team out of the famous and the ex-famous, those kinds of campfire stories are a fringe benefit.

However, the Snakes come in after a full-length series against the Cardinals with only a day's rest, which means that the Braves will have the strategic advantage of opening the series with their rotation and bullpen fully set up and rested.
