That "fake coach" was on the Mets '86 WS team as a 2B and was going to be manager of the Dbacks. He's been known to be on the bad side of trouble. Wiki: "On November 1, 2004, Backman was promoted to manager of the Arizona Diamondbacks' major league squad. However, only a day later, reports surfaced that Backman had serious legal and financial problems. He had also been arrested in 1999 for DUI in Washington as documented on HBO Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel. A year later, he was arrested in connection with an altercation in his home in Prineville, Oregon. In addition, Backman declared bankruptcy to avoid paying over 20 creditors, including the IRS. The Diamondbacks initially stood by him, but fired him on November 5 before ever managing a game."
I bet he feels he's a bit bigger than the minor leagues. He also was The Sporting News Minor League Manager of the Year in '04.
