Kirk Gibson, Diamondback

It barely caused a ripple when it was announced in November, but expect to hear plenty more about new Diamondbacks bench coach Kirk Gibson.

Jerry Crasnick at ESPN.com profiles Gibson's effect on the young Diamondbacks, "the National League team most likely to spring a surprise this season."

wtf?? When did that happen? This season is already depressing and it hasn't even started yet. I need to find a Sons of Don Mattingly blog to start reading. The biggest problem they ever have is A-Rod and Jeter don't have sleepovers.

Did Don Mattingly have illegitimate kids too?

Well, Preston Mattingly is a Dodger prospect, so we've got your Sons of Don Mattingly here as well.

Well, at least we now know why he wore a mustache all those years...

Wasn't Mattingly a legendary ladies' man for those early 90s Yankees? Or maybe he was just a drunk, I don't remember. Whichever.
