The coaching staff of Dodgers manager Joe Torre will return intact for 2009, the club announced Friday.

Hitting coach Don Mattingly, pitching coach Rick Honeycutt, third-base coach Larry Bowa, first-base coach Mariano Duncan, bench coach Bob Schaefer and bullpen coach Ken Howell will continue in the roles they held at the end of the 2008 season. [...]

Special hitting coach Manny Mota (entering his 30th season as a Dodgers coach) and bullpen catchers Mike Borzello and Rob Flippo also will return.

Congrats, guys!
