I double-take-ed so hard I hurt my neck.

If memory serves, Gretzky is a okay-average-zero-power guy who probably will stick around a few years to fill a roster spot but is unlikely to ever go really far, while Scioscia is.... basically only in baseball because of nepotism.

#2: Yeah, I am having problems coming up with reasons why the Cubs needed Scioscia. Gretzky is not going to ever make a prospect list but he's OK organizational filler. They could have just released him if they had too many low-A outfielders.

To quote myself in the Dugout thread for march 21:

AZ Phil at The Cub Reporter, who is quite in touch with Cubs minor league system, thinks the plan is to flip Scioscia back to catcher, as it's the only place in the organization where the team lacks minor league depth. Gretzky was utterly and thoroughly blocked at 1B and OF going forward with the Cubs.

This isn't necessarily a brilliant plan, but it at least counts as a plan...
