11/6 Padres sad to see Renteria go
San Diego catcher Nick Hundley was sad to hear that Rick Renteria was leaving the Padres to take over as the Cubs manager.
“It’s a tough day for the Padres to lose someone with the knowledge and the energy Ricky brings,” Hundley told MLB.com’s Corey Brock. “The city of Chicago is getting a great baseball guy, someone who comes to work each day with the kind of passion and energy that’s tough to match.
“When you’re dealing with someone on a daily basis, six months during the season, two months in Spring Training, you want to know your boss is going to be consistent and is going to have your back,” Hundley said. “We have that here with Buddy [Black] and the Cubs will have that with Ricky.”
