Giants manager Bruce Bochy reacts to firing of Bud Black

BY foxsports • June 16, 2015

Giants manager Bruce Bochy had kind words for the former manager of the San Diego Padres, Bud Black, who was fired on Monday. Per CSN Bay Area:

"I called Buddy," Bochy said. "I know Buddy well. We're close. I hated to hear that.”

Black actually replaced Bochy in San Diego following the 2006 season. Like Black, Bochy never led the Padres to a championship, but he did lead them to a handful of playoff appearances and an NL pennant in 1998.

Regarding interim manager Dave Roberts, Bochy called him "a really good baseball man.”
