Matt Williams To Manage KBO’s KIA Tigers

While managerial rumors are flying around the majors, we haven’t yet seen a team land a new skipper. But the Korea Baseball Organization’s KIA Tigers have secured their next manager in the form of Matt Williams, according to Jon Heyman of MLB Network (via Twitter).

Williams is said to have struck a three-year deal to head to Korea. The long-time big-league slugger had served as the Athletics’ third base coach for the past three campaigns.

Well, this is one way to get back on the managerial merry-go-round…..

While I find it hard to believe this will be a good fit, I admire Williams for being this adventurous.

Hope he doesn't mind Bat Flips

From the Yonhap News Agency Article

The Tigers said Williams is the right man to carry out the club's vision of establishing data-driven player development and instilling a sense of professionalism in the clubhouse.

That's gotta be a mistranslation of some kind.
