Former Tribe pitchers getting a shot

The Padres hired former Indians pitcher and Angels’ pitching coach Bud Black as their new manager Wednesday, replacing Bruce Bochy, who recently took the open managerial job in San Francisco.

Yawn, right? There’s more:

Charles Nagy, the Angels’ triple-A pitching coach, is the leading candidate to replace Black…. The Angels hired Nagy last year, in part on Black’s recommendation. Black is expected to retain San Diego pitching coach Darren Balsley but could ask the Angels about Nagy, a three-time All-Star with Cleveland.

It’d be great to see Charlie get a shot in the majors, though you had to figure it would happen at some point. It’d be even better to see Nagy back in the Tribe organization at some point.
