don wakamatsu, future major league manager?

Don Wakamatsu, bench coach for the Oakland Athletics, is widely considered to be future manager material: MANAGER IN THE MAKING. If he should become manager in the next several years, he could be the first Asian American manager in the big leagues. I'll believe it when I see it... Not to knock Wakamatsu's skill and potential as a manager, but we've seen talk here and there for years about the possible first Asian American manager/head coach in various professional sports, and it has yet to happen. Still, there seems to be quite a bit of optimistic talk surrounding the idea of Wakamatsu as manager. We'll see.
