“There was a lot of talk about me” on Melvin’s move to San Francisco

Melvin leaves San Diego for district rival with time left on contract

A smiling Bob Melvin is the new manager of the San Francisco Giants.

Bob Melvin, 61, who had one year left on his contract with the San Diego Padres, has

been named manager of the San Francisco Giants, a division rival.

Melvin held a press conference at Oracle Park in San Francisco, California, U.S., home

of the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball (MLB) on Monday (June 26) and

expressed his excitement to switch uniforms.

“There were a lot of stories about me (in San Diego), and I felt like they weren’t going

to go away for a while,” Melvin said, “so this is a great opportunity for me.”

“I enjoyed my time in San Diego, 카지노사이트랭크 but I felt like it was time to move on,” he added.

Melvin, a three-time Manager of the Year, took over as San Diego’s manager last year

and led the team to the National League Championship Series (NLCS) before falling

short of the postseason this season.

Melvin has recently been rumored to be feuding with general manager A.J. Preller, who

has denied that he has a problem with Melvin.

However, Melvin is still under contract with San Diego and has taken the job with

division rival San Francisco.

With San Diego’s permission, Melvin interviewed with San Francisco’s board of

directors, and they all signed on the dotted line.

The three-year deal keeps Melvin at the helm through the 2026 season.

San Francisco “did not pay San Diego to release Coach Melvin,” the club said.

Former St. Louis Cardinals manager Mike Shields is the favorite to replace Melvin.

San Diego infielder Ha Sung Kim will be playing in a new atmosphere next season. 고스톱
