Angels promote catching coach Bill Haselman to interim interim interim manager

If you’ve ever wondered who ranks third the line of succession behind an MLB manager, the Los Angeles Angels are having the kind of season that can give us our answer.

And that answer is “catching coach.”

Specifically, the Angels are turning to catching coach Bill Hasselman to helm their clubhouse on Sunday and Tuesday after manager Joe Maddon’s firing and suspensions for interim manager Phil Nevin and acting interim manager Ray Montgomery. So he’s their temporary acting interim manager, or interim interim interim manager.

And if Haselman is ejected, the new Angels manager is Alexander Haig.

"We apologize again for the fault in the subtitles. Those responsible for sacking the people who have just been sacked have been sacked."

Next on the managerial depth chart: "RALPH" The Wonder Llama.

Haig thinks he already is manager.

I thought it was Robert Bork.

Every former Red Sox backup catcher is destined to become a manager. Except Mirabelli.

More seriously, why not Trout? It's only 2 games. Give the false something interesting in this miserable season.

HOW WILL THE ANGELS INTERIM INTERIM INTERIM LOSE TODAY?

Just let Ohtani manage and change the locks on the building before Nevin's suspension ends.
   12. The Honorable Ardo Posted: July 06, 2022 at 12:27 AM (#6085706)
Couldn't agree more. Player-manager Ohtani would make great copy and could hardly be worse than what they've gotten.

I know someone (now in her 70s) whose celebrity crush was Alexander Haig.
I still don't know how to process this.

She likes the take charge type?

Well, Trout's last managerial gig ended up with a ##### slap in the outfield, so maybe we should go with Haselman.

14 - oh, that is 1000% percent it. i get it analytically, but it is still wild to me 20 years after learning this.
