Vermont, GCL Staffs Announced

The countdown to spring training shortens, and the Nationals' organizational flowchart lengthens. Washington today filled out the staffs for two of its minor league teams, the short-season Class A Vermont Lake Monsters and the rookie-level Gulf Coast League Nationals.

Jeff Garber will serve as the new Vermont manager, replacing Ramon Aviles (who in 2009 will manage the organization's spring training program in Viera, Fla., and then move into a coaching role with Class A Hagerstown). Garber, 42, spent last year as Washington's minor league field coordinator. Before the Lake Monsters' season starts in June, Garber will help out as a minor league spring training coordinator / infield coordinator. As for the rest of the Vermont staff: Franklyn Bravo will serve as the pitching coach, Sergio Mendez will serve as the hitting coach, and Wilkin Perez will serve as trainer.

With the GLC Nats, Bobby Henley is coming back for his fourth season as manager. Last year, the Nationals advanced to their league's championship series. Completing the staff: pitching coach Joel Sanchez, hitting coach Paul Sanagorski and coach Cesar Cedeno.

Jon DeNunzio in his online chat just now: "I have to bring this up, too -- and I think another question in my queue hits this topic -- we think hard about how much to do on the Nats when all metrics we have to gauge reader/fan interest seem to show quite limited passion for the team at this point. You know the list ... page views on our site, tv ratings, results of The Post's extensive reader surveys, etc etc."

The same could have been said about your attitude toward Capitals coverage at this time last year, Jon. Now the Caps are winning and they're the flavor of the month in the Post. Why don't you guys just quit with the BS answers like this one and admit it? You're front runners, not journalists. Maybe that's why your web journalism about the Nats isn't getting many hits.
