Meet the new boss.

Same as the old boss.

Good line.

But this guy is actually very different from the previous guy whose name must not be mentioned.

Apparently the new guy is VERY into the whole, heavy-duty reliance on stats, that the owners like. It'll be interesting.

I heard that he wasn't really a stats guy but a players coach.

I heard that he wilkl listen to what management wants him to do and not do it all on his own.

This means listening to the stats guy, and probably installing a phone from the owners box down in the dugout.

I wonder if Curt Schilling will have an internet connection installed in that place in the outfiled where the pitchers hang out.

I hear Schilling is a pretty tech-savvy guy. He probably won't need an internet connection installed, he's probably got all sorts of wifi-enabled PDAs and laptops.
