Buck Showalter is returning from two years in the Elba of the ESPN analyst's booth to manage the Texas Rangers, tantamount to being exiled in the American League West, baseball's toughest division. He is returning as a proven winner, having helped restore the New York Yankees' pride and presence and having helped turn the Arizona Diamondbacks into the game's most successful expansion team.

Buck Showalter signed a seven-year, $7-million contract to manage the Arizona Diamondbacks, but this Buck doesn't stop there. He has been architect of the team on the field and architect of a lot more. "We're a first-year team, we're just starting out, we want to do it right," said Showalter, whose control as manager of the New York Yankees was limited by an owner named George Steinbrenner. With the Diamondbacks, Showalter may be the closest thing baseball has to a manager-general manager.

Dodger Manager Davey Johnson will have company. The Arizona Diamondbacks, Cincinnati Reds and Pittsburgh Pirates fired their managers Monday in continuing a purge expected to leave many seeking work. Buck Showalter of the Diamondbacks, Jack McKeon of the Reds and Gene Lamont of the Pirates were among the first victims of increased payrolls and unfulfilled expectations, being ousted a day after the regular season ended.

The days of the good old boys' network in major league baseball may be ending. Former second baseman Phil Garner, 42, was named manager of the Milwaukee Brewers Wednesday. He becomes the fourth relatively young former player in a month to be hired without any previous big league managerial experience, joining the Boston Red Sox's Butch Hobson, the Seattle Mariners' Bill Plummer and the New York Yankees' Buck Showalter.

Buck Showalter is expected to become the New York Yankees' manager today. Showalter was fired along with Manager Stump Merrill and four other coaches by Yankee General Manager Gene Michael on Oct. 7. At the time, Michael said he would seek a manager with major league experience and the hunt seemed to focus on Doug Rader, Hal Lanier and Davey Johnson.

There are some unwritten laws in baseball that players simply know are true. Sunflower seeds taste better in the dugout. The longer the road trip, the farther your hotel room will be from the elevator. And you are totally free to complain about the contract you just signed, either right before the ink is dry or as soon as you think the manager is misusing you, whichever comes first. Actually, it's all pretty comforting, this baseball law business, because you know what to expect.

Randy Johnson didn't allow his bullpen to blow the lead for him this time. The Arizona Diamondbacks' $52.4-million star struck out 15 and pitched a six-hitter in an 8-3 victory over Tom Glavine and the Atlanta Braves. "I got away with [mistakes] because the team scored a lot of runs," Johnson said after leading the Diamondbacks to their first victory of the season. "I went against the book on a couple of guys and found out that the book was pretty much right on the hitters."

Reggie Waller, who calls himself an amateur scout at heart, became the highest-ranking minority executive in Padre history Wednesday when he agreed to a contract as scouting director of the Padres. Waller orally agreed to terms on a multi-year contract Wednesday afternoon in a conference call with chairman Tom Werner and Joe McIlvaine, general manager. The official announcement will be made today, providing Waller time to contact Seattle Mariner officials.
