Phillies hire Wall of Famer Juan Samuel for Third Base Coaching Job, Move Sam Perlozzo to First Base Coach

The Phillies sort of did the expected today, but with a twist, filling the first base coaching vacancy left by the departed Davey Lopes with current third base coach Sam Perlozzo, and installing long-time second baseman Juan Samuel as the new third base coach.  Samuel had served as the Baltimore Orioles' interim manager briefly in 2010, prior to the team's hiring of Buck Showalter.  Perlozzo is likely being punished for not sending Jimmy Rollins to the plate on that Ryan Howard double in Game Six of the NLCS WHAT THE HELL SAM?!

It's almost impossible to evaluate Samuel's third base coaching prowess, so I'll leave you with the fact that he has a son named Samuel Samuel, which is really cool beans.
