Rays Hire Ex-Sox Catcher Cash As New Manager

Kevin Cash's Red Sox career was kind of forgettable. It spanned three years and 102 games—with Cash hitting .188 and delivering a dismal .279 OBP. He was a pretty good defensive backstop—but not that good. He did, however, get a ring on the 2007 World Championship team—albeit only playing in 12 games that year. But now, he will forever be the answer to the trivia question: Who succeeded Joe Maddon as manager of the Tampa Bay Rays? That's right, Cash was hired today to be the new skipper of the ravaged Rays—bereft of David Price, GM Andrew Friedman and Maddon. Good luck, Kevin. Not really.
