Flippin’ For Felipe

Sometimes, good news follows bad. That’s certainly the case this week for SF Giants fans. Normally a classy operation, the Giants management slipped out of character with its clumsy handling of the Dusty Baker situation.

Happily, the organization has almost instantly recovered its stature by moving quickly and hiring the one person in all of baseball who was worthy of filling Dusty’s shoes—the venerable Felipe Alou. Not only is Felipe a part of Giants tradition and history (he was a teammate of Willy Mays), he’s shown his class in the way he surmounted the woeful situation thrust upon him in his managerial days at Montreal.

Welcome back, Felipe!!
