He's not Matt Williams.  He has been Maddon's bench coach for many years.  Williams did not have that on his resume.  Do you think Maddon would have Matt Williams as his bench coach?

Would not have Matt Williams for my bench coach nor my manager but that did not keep this team's brain trust from hiring Williams to manage.

Martinez is not a Maddon clone. Who knows what he will be. I wanted someone who had been in the pilot's seat before not another learn as they go, in training coach. Dusty could not get it done and that is why he was fired or so they said.

What makes anyone thing Martinez will get it done his first year and the "window closing year"
