Two years ago after the debacle of a 51-111 record, the Diamondbacks decided they needed to go a different direction with their coaching staff. Al Pedrique filled in as best he could after Bob Brenly was fired on July 2. Pedrique managed to win 22 games while losing 61 for the rest of the season. Once the last game was finished on the 2004 campaign the Diamondbacks management expressed their desire to find a different manager.
