Bochy lined up for the job (Andrew Baggarly, 10/27/06, San Jose Mercury News)

The Giants are expected to introduce Bruce Bochy as their new manager at a news conference today, sources told the Mercury News.

Bochy, 51, has spent the past 12 seasons managing the San Diego Padres and just led them to their second consecutive National League West title -- a first for the franchise. But San Diego CEO Sandy Alderson has declined to discuss an extension beyond 2007, when Bochy's contract would expire.

He's well liked and he wins--what more do the Padres expect from his successor?
