It was announced just three days ago that former Padres manager, Bob Melvin, was interviewed for the opening manager job in San Francisco. Yesterday, the Giants announced that they have hired Bob Melvin to manage the team in 2024.
Melvin, who is extremely respected, is on his way to his former team's NL West rival. The move comes at no surprise as Melvin and the Padres have not seen eye to eye for quite some time. The Giants, who are a up and coming team, needs the leadership that Melvin has provided in every city he has managed.
The Giants will almost certainly see an increase in production with Bob Melvin at the helm. The young core that San Francisco is fielding has the potential to succeed. With their young guns on their way, mixed with their veterans, Bob Melvin has a very unique opportunity to take this team to the next level.
