Lenn Sakata

Interesting Q & A from BA's California League prospect chat:

"Q: Kevin from Foster City, CA. asks:
One last question about a prospect, but not a player: Lenn Sakata's managed 5 teams in a weak SF Giants system, and taken them all to the playoffs, including this year's Cal League champs. He plays talk down, but is he a future big league manager?

 "A: Kevin Goldstein: Two in a row for my namesake, because I like the question. It's a great question. If I had to do a list of top manager prospects, he'd be at the head of the list."

I had no idea what Sakata was up to these days, but I'm delighted to hear that he's having success.

You might think that I'm going to suggest that he might be a good manager for the Orioles, but honestly, I'm not sure that I would wish that situation on my worst enemy, let alone a guy I always liked and rooted for when I was growing up.
