Vince Belnome, who spent most of 2014 with the Durham Bulls, summarized what so many felt for Bulls manager Charlie Montoyo, who's been named the Rays new third base coach.
Montoyo managed the Rays Triple-a club for eight years, leading them to seven division titles and two Governor's Cup Championships.
Montoyo was one of the final candidates for the Rays managerial job, which eventually went to Kevin Cash. He was considered a favorite, though it's possible the Rays had this plan in mind when they took Montoyo off the list.
In the Bulls official announcement, GM Mike Birling said of Montyo, "He is the definition of a class act. While it's bittersweet to see him go, we're happy to see him take the next step in his career. No one is more deserving of this promotion."
