@AdamRubinESPN: Former #Mets coach Chip Hale is the new manager of the Arizona #Dbacks. News story: http://t.co/Qi1yJFR41X

He was the current bench coach for the Oakland A's. He previously served as a third base coach for the Mets and was a finalist for the managerial job in 2011. Prior to that, he was the third base coach under Bob Melvin in Arizona.

Well, out of the five finalists they had he's the best choice, IMO. Thank god we didn't pick Jim Tracy, that's all I've got to say.

I actually wouldn't have minded Phil Nevin, but he's doing a good job with the AAA crew so it's not the worst thing to keep him there.

I'm a fan of Bob Melvin disciples.

It's not Kirk Gibson, so this is good.

*Diamondbacks hire A's bench coach as their manager*

Well about that great Mets managerial search of 2011.
