Former PawSox strikeout guy George Lombard has been hired as hitting coach for the Lowell Spinners.
You know how sometimes, in baseball, you just like guys? They might not be the best player, or the most interesting, but they seem reasonably cool and you're kinda always rooting for them.
I hated Lombard! Not really. I like him. At any rate, he's back in the system.
Lombard was in Pawtucket for part 0f 2004 and all of '05. He played along such stars as Dave Berg, Adam Hyzdu, and Roberto Petagine. And Cla Meredith! Lenny Dinardo! Geremi Gonzalez!
