They say “those who can’t do, teach”. But is it possible for those who can do and have done, to teach? In the case of Roberto Alomar, I certainly hope so.
Listening to Bob McCown speak with Roberto Alomar prior to the Conn Smythe Celebrity Dinner, it sounded like McCown was giving him a screening interview for a coaching position with the Blue Jays.
