RAUL IBANEZ PULLS OUT OF "SKIP" CONSIDERATION
Raul Ibanez was one of the finalists for the Tampa Bay Rays managing job. Then, something happened... he pulled himself out of consideration. The reason? Personal reasons.
According to the Tampa Tribune, he left for "family concerns." It's all we know at this point and it's personal... no need to dig to find out.
One important note for Yankee fans though; if that happened for a gig he really wanted, you can probably kiss Raul goodbye for any type of consideration for a hitting coach gig in New York with the Yanks.
Whatever it is, he's being a man. He's walking away from the game he loves to deal with his family. I applaud that and we wish Raul well.
