Angels pitching coach Bud Black was hired Wednesday to replace Bruce Bochy as the manager of the San Diego Padres (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/sdg/), a baseball official said. Black will be introduced at the team's awards banquet Thursday night, the official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because an official announcement hadn't been made.

Black, who lives outside San Diego, has been the Angels' pitching coach for the last seven seasons. He played at San Diego State with Tony Gwynn (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/players/7814/) and pitched in the big leagues for 15 seasons, helping the Kansas City Royals (http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/teams/kan/) win the 1985 World Series.
Dusty Baker, considered the leading candidate, said he was told Wednesday morning that he didn't get the job.

Damn, I liked Black.

I said in the A's manager thread that "I'd be shocked if Blacky(Bud)doesn't get hired (mgr.)by some other team:mad:. Good luck in SD "Blacky".
