The Padres introduced their new manager on Monday and Bob Melvin did everything right. He said all the right things. He struck the right tone. Basically, he was Bob Melvin.
But, how did he end up in San Diego and why is the baseball world almost unanimously praising the Friars for making the move? That sounds like good stuff to talk about in an OnFriar Podcast.
In a special edition NBC 7's Derek Togerson, Darnay Tripp, and Todd Strain discuss the first meeting with the new head man and share some of the interesting snippets from his introductory news conference.
