As a player, Bob Melvin was best known for his spells as a strong defensive catcher with the San Francisco Giants and the Baltimore Orioles. He later became a major league manager with the Oakland Athletics. After his playing career ended, Melvin spent some time as a scout and worked in the Milwaukee Brewers front office before moving to the dugout. He was a Brewers coach in 1999, and then followed skipper Phil Garner to the Detroit Tigers in 2000. He was a member of the Arizona Diamondbacks coaching staff the next two seasons before taking over as Seattle Mariners manager after the 2002 season. After two years at the helm of the Mariners, Melvin joined the Arizona Diamondbacks as their skipper for the 2005 season. He was taking over a team that had lost 108 games as the veterans who had contributed to Arizona's World Series title in 2001 had retired or left, with the team's farm sytem too barren to replace them adequately. Melvin set out to rebuild the team and in 2007, he led a young Diamondbacks team to a NL West Division title as well as the best record in the National League, a remarkable feat considering that his team allowed more runs than it scored over the season. However, success was short-lived. After a red hot start, the D-Backs faded badly down the stretch in 2008 and finished barely above .500. Then in 2009, the team started slowly and was already 8½ games out of first when Melvin was fired on May 7. One of the main criticisms against him was that Arizona's many young players had failed to develop under his leadership and he was replaced by A.J. Hinch, who lacked coaching or managerial experience but had been Vice-President in charge of player development. Melvin was re-hired by the Diamondbacks in May of 2011 for a third stint with the organization, this time as a special assistant to team President Derrick Hall. He did not stay long in the job, as just a month later, on June 9, 2011, he was hired as skipper of the Oakland Athletics, replacing the fired Bob Geren. Melvin's main teammates were Cal Ripken, Will Clark, Randy Milligan, Robby Thompson, Gregg Olson, Bob Brenly, Joe Orsulak, Candy Maldonado, Mickey Tettleton and Jose Uribe.
