    Oquendo not coaching next year per mlbtraderomors.com. Marmol to bench coach Warner to 3rd. Greer returning to roving role. 1st base and hitting coach jobs open. Clapp likely to be offered one if not plucked away from organization.

    Oquendo also obviously was not the able to immediately solve the team’s defendive woes as many unrealisticly thought he could.

    Not a bad way to ride off into the sunset…..a net worth of about 10-15MM and more importantly, enough great memories to keep 10 men happy and content in their golden years. Have a ball, Oqie!!

    Oquendo IS coaching next year. He is returning to the player development staff in Jupiter.

    Oh geesh….. let the great memories (and the net worth) keep a mounting for Oqie.

    The Oquendo deal with the Mets was one I did not like at the time, as we gave up what appeared to be a promising young left-handed pitcher for him named John Young. But that deal has paid great dividends to this day.

    Glad he will remain in the organization. As long as Maloney is not the third base coach, then we should be okay.

    Well this is welcomed news. Clapp knows all of Memphis players that are now in St. Louis, and he’ll be a plus for the coaching staff by just being around. It also puts a guy ready and waiting for Mozeliak to hire, if he should happen to have a need to blame someone else (Shildt) for the problems that the FO has created.

    Clapp will be an option to manage any MLB team should the need arise, and of course, including STL.
