A welcomed addition: Joppie, Brentz give stamp of approval to new PawSox manager Boles

December 19, 2013

To enlighten the masses regarding the kind of manager and person the Pawtucket Red Sox are getting in Kevin Boles, we engaged in a background check that conjured all sorts of positive vibrations.

In essence, this is a “getting-to-know-you-better” exercise, an opportunity to view through the lens of those who know and understand Boles best and have more insight into his roots than any introductory press conference ever could.

PawSox extend coaching staff, bring Crabbe aboard

December 19, 2013

PAWTUCKET — At a time when a host of Boston’s top prospects are stationed in Double-A and Triple-A, the organization arrived at the decision to provide the PawSox coaching staff with an additional voice.

To be clear, Kevin Boles is Pawtucket’s new manager while fellow Triple-A newcomer Bruce Crabbe is classified as coach, not bench coach. The pair will be joined in the trenches by pitching coach Rich Sauveur and hitting coach Dave Joppie, two holdovers from Gary DiSarcina’s staff who will be returning to McCoy Stadium in 2014.
