“We told all the candidates that Frank Vogel’s our coach,” Alex Martins said after the formal question-and-answer session. “That was probably the only non-negotiable, and that comes directly from ownership. Ownership believes that Frank hasn’t had a chance, that he was dealt a short deck, so to speak, in terms of the overall complete roster and that he deserves a chance with the right administration and the right roster movement to be able to prove what he’s done in the past, and that is to be successful.”
A reporter asked Weltman why he hired Hammond. “Because he’s better than me,” Weltman answered. “What can I say? I’ve known John forever. I’ve worked with him. I’ve seen the guy. I can’t say enough good things about John Hammond. But I don’t want to gush about him because you guys will see for yourselves. And ultimately, we’re going to do a lot of talking here today, and then we’re going to walk out, and it’s up to us to prove it.”
