Adios Super Gallego!!


As much credit as we all gave Super Gallego for the highs of last season, I guess he must shoulder some of the blame for the disappointment that was 2008. Somehow, it doesn't seem fair that the 3rd base coach is the fall guy for a season gone wrong, but there were plenty of base running blunders throughout the season. Knowing the kind of standup guy Super Gallego is, I'm sure he's cleaning out his locker today with chin held high without regret or contempt. Stay strong my man, some team will surely come calling for your services, and BSB will be in attendance rooting you on when you're coaching 3rd from the visitor's bench. Thanks for the memories.....

It is with a heavy heart that we bid Super Gallego adieu.

Not the case with another casualty yesterday...Matt "Mitchell Report" Herges. Boom, gone.

2009 will be a very weird season without super gallego at 3rd. Some pretty big decisions will have to be made in the front office as to who is going to fill those big (or shall I say Super-Big) shoes.

Herges gone too eh? I don't think I need to express my feelins on that.

Obviously, someboday in the front office is watching the latest poll results on who those at BSB wouldn't be bummed to see go next year - Herges.

I read today that Super Gallego landed a job coaching 3rd base with the A's! Glad he went over to my AL team, so that I can continue rooting for him. Looks like I'm going to have another reason to get the MLB Extra Inning package next season!

Nice he wound up with the A's. Too bad he doesn't go back to playing bass with Van Halen too.
