Raines named manager of Newark Bears

Yanks, Sox battling it out over free agent pitcher
Book Review: Daniel R. Levitt's Ed Barrow

The title is self-explanatory – Rock Raines was named manager of the independent Newark Bears. What makes his story interesting is that less than a month ago the Bears ceased operations and folded. Well, since then a new ownership group swooped in and purchased the team (after bankruptcy), and the Atlantic League approved their return for 2009. So there will be baseball in Newark this year. Woo hoo. (h/t Mike Ashmore)
