Before the weekend, when rumors abounded that Bob Melvin and Wally Backman had pulled in front and that Terry Collins was backsliding, I wrote in this post: I still believe Collins is the front-runner, with Bob Melvin slotting in as the bench coach, Chip Hale remaining in the coaching staff and Backman staying in the […]
