New Dodger Manager Hope to Escape Past

by @ 5:34 pm. Filed under 2006 Season

LA Times columnist Steve Henson wrote a nice column on the Dodgers new manager, Grady Little.  Little will take over after Jim Tracy was dismissed during the offseason after coaching the Dodgers for the last five years.  Little became infamous after he left Pedro Martinez in a little (no pun intended) too long in game seven of the 2003 ALCS.  He was fired after only two seasons in Boston and while the Red Sox won it the year after he was gone, it would have been interesting to see how Little would have done if he had the services of both Curt Schilling and Keith Foulke.

There was some speculation that former Dodger’s pitcher Orel Hershiser would become the next coach but Little ended up getting the job.
