So...how about yesterday?

On Monday afternoon, the Rays made a shocking announcement that Tom Foley would be leaving the major league coaching staff. He had been serving as the bench coach and was formerly the third base coach, he has been on the Rays major league coaching staff since 2002.

Now, yesterday, the Rays made another shocking announcement as they announced Jim Hickey would not be returning as the team’s pitching coach, a position he has held since 2007.

In their places the Rays will make Charlie Montoyo the new bench coach and Kyle Snyder will take over the pitching coach duties.
