The phone rang in his apartment early Wednesday morning. Greg Riddoch looked at his wife, Linda, knowing only bad news could come at this hour. It was Joe McIlvaine, Padre general manager. He wanted Riddoch to meet him at his office. Riddoch long ago had predicted the rest. Riddoch was fired Wednesday and replaced by Jim Riggleman, the Padres' triple-A manager at Las Vegas the past two seasons. Riggleman, 39, became the youngest manager in the National League.

It's no coincidence that the two managers to resign in midseason, Jim Riggleman and Edwin Rodriguez , were the lowest-paid managers in the majors. Riggleman, in his third season with the Washington Nationals and 12th as a manager, was earning $600,000, sources say. That's more than $200,000 less than Chicago Cubs hitting coach Rudy Jaramillo . Riggleman may wish he had handled his situation differently, but you can see why he said he never felt "respected" by team owner Ted Lerner . . . . The group of pre-1980 players who were awarded pensions in a deal announced by MLB and the players' union on April 21 still haven't received any money.

The Chicago Cubs put closer Rod Beck on the 15-day disabled list with a bone spur in the elbow of his pitching arm. Manager Jim Riggleman said he isn't sure the elbow spur has anything to do with the veteran right-hander's recent woes. Beck has blown four saves this year and has a 10.54 earned-run average. Pitcher Ray King was called up from triple-A Iowa to fill Beck's spot on the Cubs' roster.

Larry Dierker has come full circle, from second-guessing managers to being second-guessed himself. Last season, little that Dierker did merited critical scrutiny. The Houston Astros broadcaster-turned-manager won the National League manager-of-the-year award Wednesday after leading the Houston Astros to a team-record 102 wins and their second consecutive division title.
