We’ve either heard rumors or actual reported news about most of these guys, but the Dodgers have officially announced their coaching staff for 2011.  Joining Don Mattingly will be Davey Lopes at first base, Tim Wallach at third and former Royals’ manager Trey Hillman as the bench coach. Pitching coach Rick Honeycutt and hitting coach Jeff Pentland will keep the jobs they had under Joe Torre.

I’m going to pretend that the Dodgers waiting to make all of these moves official until after Mattingly’s run as manager in the Arizona Fall League was over, and they were contented that they did not have to reanimate the corpse of Walter Alston in order to save an overmatched Mattingly.

But they probably have Lasorda on speed dial.

    Great Davey Lopes helps the Dodgers and we’ve got Juan Samuel.

      Meh. All Lopes did was steal bases for the Dodgers. Samuel, on the other hand, stole them for the PHIGHTINS, baby.

    Strong coaching staff. They’ll need it, until Mattingly proves he can manage his way out of a paper bag.
