    Chili Davis met with Giants for hitting coach position

    SAN FRANCISCO – The Giants are interviewing for a position on Manager Bruce Bochy’s coaching staff before they have an official vacancy – and a prime candidate is a name that will resonate among their fans.

    Chili Davis met with Giants officials on Thursday about becoming their major league hitting coach, according to a source with knowledge of the discussions. Davis, who spent the previous three years as the Boston Red Sox’s hitting instructor, also met with the San Diego Padres on Wednesday.

    Giants GM Bobby Evans would neither confirm nor deny the meeting with Davis – an understandable position to take, given that the team has no official vacancies on Bochy’s coaching staff.

    But it’s expected that there will be changes to the coaching staff after the Giants finished 64-98 and ended the season with baseball’s worst record for just the second time since 1902. They finished last in the majors in home runs and OPS; only the Padres scored fewer runs.

    Interesting. Not so much because of Chili Davis, but that the Giants are actually considering changing something.

    From what I've read it seems it'll be Alex Cora's job.

    If Chili Davis left Jamaica and went to LA and joined Davis along Strawberry. Chili would have been 2 years older off the top of my head.

    I just don't think Dusty would take that position. For him I am sure it's manage or tend to his vineyard.
    Baseball has been very very good to me!

    I'd be shocked if another team gave Dusty a chance to manage again.

    Porque? I don't really have an opinion on the matter. Just from people to seem to say is that they're grooming him to be the next manager and that he did good job in the WBC managing the Netherlands.

    Agreed. I would give him a shot. Really not his fault Evans gave him a team that doesn't know how to hit a baseball. He's young too and I think he speaks 4 different languages? A good thing to have.

    Will say I do feel bad for Wotus, seems like the dude got demoted in all of this after spending what, 20 years as a bench coach for us?

    Five actually- English, Spanish, Japanese, Dutch, and Papamiento. Good thing to have the top three languages needed in baseball.
