NBCSports Hardball Talk and the St. Louis Post-Dispatch are reporting the Dodgers and Mark McGwire are close to finalizing a deal making McGwire the teams new hitting coach.
From the St. Louis Post-Dispatch:
"McGwire is leaning toward accepting the position with Dodgers manager Don Mattingly's staff because of geography. McGwire and his family live in Orange County and McGwire has long emphasized the role his wife and children play in career decisions."
True to the Blue!
