McGwire, Dodgers appear to be a match

Mark McGwire, who has served as Cardinals hitting coach for three seasons under two managers, has informed the club that he intends to accept a similar position with the Los Angeles Dodgers, sources familiar with the situation told the Post-Dispatch this afternoon.

Though a deal between the Dodgers and McGwire is not considered final, McGwire has told the Cardinals that he does not anticipate accepting their offer of a contract extension.

whoa. the first thing that pops into my mind is that he just wants to be closer to home. he's a pretty private guy and he lives in orange county, i believe.

if the dodgers start hitting, he's going to get a pretty strong pixie dust reputation. the cards have hit a ton in the two (three?) years he's been their hitting coach.

edit: guess i should have read the article first, since what i said is pretty much in there. duh.
