Despite Bo Porter not being physically present (he's in the middle of a dadgum division race - everyone freaking calm down that he didn't make a round trip flight from Philadelphia for a 35 minute press conference), there were a lot of things to note about the press conference:
*Luhnow said that Bo Porter will be a big name in five years, and other teams would be looking to hire managers like Porter.
*Luhnow: A field of 49 candidates was narrowed down to four, but Porter was the only candidate offered the job.
*Once the season is over, Porter will be able to evaluate and assemble his staff.
*Tony DeFrancesco will remain with the organization.
*New uniforms will be unveiled on November 2.
