Hensley Meulens has received positive reviews for his communications skills and upbeat approach while leading the Netherlands to two straight extended runs in the WBC.

Meulens, who has contributed to three World Series victories since taking over as Giants hitting coach in 2010, is upfront about his desire to run a major league club someday.
