This was from yesterday, but:
The Phillies on Thursday hired Dave Brundage as manager of the Triple-A Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Brundage managed the Atlanta Braves’ Triple-A affiliate for the last six years. He has a career record of 1,086-1,028 (.514) in 13 seasons as a minor league manager.
Always good to see teams trying to emulate their betters.
