Giants fans sure love them some Bruce Bochy, and why wouldn’t they?
The Rangers manager is likely to be remembered in baseball circles as the Giants manager who in 2010 led them to their first World Series title since moving to San Francisco. He tacked on two more in 2012 and 2014.
When he retired in 2019 after 13 seasons, he left with the second-most victories in franchise history (1,052). Nobody is catching John McGraw.
At 68, Bochy probably doesn’t have 13 seasons with the Rangers in him. He signed a three-year deal in October after being wooed off the couch and back to the bench by general manager Chris Young.
Bochy replaced interim manager Tony Beasley, who finished the season after Chris Woodward was fired.
Woodward was dismissed a year ago Tuesday with the Rangers 51-63.
