On the chance you missed it like I did (sort of speaks to the type of season it was), the Phillies' 2012 season officially came to an end this afternoon with a loss at Washington. Afterwards they wasted no time in making some changes. According to Jim Salisbury of CSN Philly, coaches Greg Gross, Pete Mackanin, and Sam Perlozzo were all told they will not be back next season. I and everyone on Twitter all thought the same thing: Sandberg will be on the Phillies bench next season. In other words, to make it more relevant to this blog, he won't be the manager of the IronPigs in 2013.

Keep in mind other Major League teams will be looking to hire Ryno this offseason to manage their team in 2013. I would think however that he would accept a base coach or bench coach position with the Phils next year in order to take over as manager in 2014.
Salisbury says that the team will talk more about next year's staff at a Thursday press conference.
Quick blog note...B&B will be back full-time very soon. To be honest there's not much news right now anyway.
