Deeble to Skipper Spinners

The Boston Red Sox have announced that John Deeble will succeed Bruce Crabbe as manager of the (low-A) Lowell Spinners. Deeble spent 2006 as Boston's Coordinator of Pacific Rim Scouting and recently gained media attention for his role in the Red Sox's acqusition of Daisuke Matsuzaka. He will be a familiar face in Lowell, having managed them to a 39-34 record in 2003. The Australian born Deeble has also managed the Aussie national team since 2000, guiding them to a silver medal finish at Athens in 2004. Crabbe remains in the organization retaining his position as Minor League Infield Coordinator after serving in both roles last season.
