Theo Hires Manny As Cubs Hitting Consultant
The Chicago Cubs announced today that they have hired Manny to be a major-league hitting consultant. Last week, it was reported that Youk was also hired by Theo Epstein as a part-time scouting and player development consultant. Be honest, whenever you think of Manny and Youk, you think: "Consultant". Anyway, Theo made the following comments about Manny, "Sometimes people say Manny is a hitting savant, but there was a lot of hard work that went into it in Boston. He's definitely thought through a lot of aspects of hitting. He's got a real intuition about what hitters are trying to do and what pitchers are trying to do to hitters and how to maintain proper swing mechanics." Manny being mechanic!
