2008-10-10 13:30:00Friday LCSNothing to do with tonight's game, but I found it interesting that the Texas Rangers fired third base coach Matt Walbeck after their season ended. Walbeck, who is only 39, managed in the Tigers' system prior to this year and was the 2007 Minor League Manager of the Year. Walbeck is a future big league manager. (David Laurila)
