Phillies Coaching Updates

I meant to post this earlier but it slipped my things to do list on the day. The Phillies named Pete Mackanin the new bench coach on Friday. He will be replacing Jimy Williams who chose to not come back for the 2009 campaign. Mackanin has a pretty impressive major league coaching background. 

He was the interim manager for the Reds in 2007, a position he held for the last three months of the season. He also was the interim manager for the Pirates in 2005 for 26 games.

He was the Montreal Expos third base coach from 1997-2000 and the Pirates bench coach from 2003-2005.

The move from the Phillies front office means that former Orioles manager and recently coach Sam Perlozzo and been named the third base coach, to replace the fired Steve Smith.
