Robinson gets raise to manage the Expos

Postby WebHamster » Sun Mar 14, 2004 3:01 am

Viera, FL (Sports Network) - Hall of Famer Frank Robinson has agreed to terms on a one-year contract to manage the Montreal Expos for the 2004 season.

Robinson announced in November that he was going to return to the Montreal bench, but didn't officially agree to a contract until Saturday that included a raise.

Last season, Montreal was in the wild card race until falling out in September.

Two seasons ago, Robinson guided the Expos to a second-place finish in the NL East Division with an 83-79 mark. The record was a 15-win improvement from the previous season and was the team's best finish since 1996.

In his two seasons as Montreal's skipper, Robinson is 166-158.

Robinson has also managed for Cleveland, San Francisco and Baltimore.

The Expos, currently being run by the commissioner's office of Major League Baseball, will once again play some of their games in Puerto Rico this season.
