Not strange at all. Catchers are the on-field managers during games. Coaches and managers talk directly to catchers constantly during games to call pitches, plays, arrange fielders, order catcher/pitcher meetings, etc.

It's a natural progression for catchers to become managers.

It's also why coaches in the NBA are often former point guards.

Ditto NHL coaches being former defensemen and NFL coaches being former jock strap cleaners

All four teams left are coached by former catchers.

Which all leads back to why the Sox should hire Tek.

I don't know about absolute certainty, there are still lightning strikes, brain aneurysms and bear attacks to deal with. Those are all non-zero probabilities.
