Willie Randolph landed a job in Milwaukee as Ken Macha’s bench coach. That’s a good move for Randolph, as a stop-gap job while he waits out a managerial opening. From ESPN:
“We are very pleased to add Willie to the organization as he brings recent National League expertise and success to our coaching staff,” general manager Doug Melvin said. “His reputation as a player is a quality that will be valuable in his teaching and coaching of our talented young team. Willie is a professional both on and off the field.”
The Brewers may end up being in the playoff hunt again next season. It’ll be a lot more difficult without CC Sabathia. But working the bench for a successful team will keep Randolph on the radar of teams looking to make a managerial change during the season.
