The Rays’ Andrew Friedman and Chicago’s Rick Hahn both turned down interview requests, which was to be expected.

So ends this brief ‘Hahn to Baltimore’ speculation.

That doesn’t sound good

WSCR AM-670:

New White Sox hitting coach Jeff Manto has a different view when it comes to taking pitches. telling The Mully and Hanley Show that walks set up double-play balls.

“Do we want Adam Dunn taking a ball (when it is) off the plate with a man on third and the infield back and you got (Justin) Verlander throwing and he walks him? I don’t know,” Manto said.

“What happens is that you set up the double play. If you (hit) into a double play, you get out of the inning. We give high five for taking the walk, but we have arguably the most prolific left-handed hitter in the game at the plate. He can drive that run in.”

Great! More swinging outside of the zone.

Sources said Friday evening that the Phillies and Thome have agreed on a one-year contract, pending Thome passing a physical. Terms of the deal were unknown, although it seems likely to be a low-risk signing.

… since there’s no DH in the National League.
