Marlins Hire 3rd Base Coach

Joe Girardi has made his first hire:

New Marlins manager Joe Girardi has made his first hire, adding Bobby Meacham as his third-base coach.

Meacham, 45, spent last season as a minor league infield instructor in the Rockies system. Previously he managed in the Pirates organization.

 He replaces Jeff Cox, the Marlins third-base coach the past two seasons.

Meacham played in the majors for the Yankees.

Ho hum. Nothing too exciting to see here.

I wish there was mention of Meacham's success stories (with developing players) or a mention of him being bilingual. Since there's neither, I'm ambivalent about this news.
