Sounds like he's going to hang around and do whatever. Sounds like a pretty sweet gig. Hope he's doing it because he's bored, and not because he needs the money.

Maybe he can teach some of the fast guys how to steal bases at a high percentage like he did.

One great thing about baseball is the way old-timers can stay involved, especially if they have the right personality. Yogi Berra I guess is the archetype of this.

Jimmy should do more commercials. I think he's better in front of the camera than Shaq.

Isn't he the PA announcer during Spring Training? That seems like a hardship job.
