Yanks Down to Second Choices?
Now, I believe these situations, as often as not, work out for the best, but I don't want them to lead the Yankees back into the reactive spending we saw from them last season. Not that we couldn't use some help, but we can't afford the picks that go with orgiatic acquisitions.
Meanwhile, lots of jobs remain open for the Yanks, including MLB and AAA hitting coach was well as head of player development.
Hitting coaches maybe somewhat fungible, but a head of player development can make a huge difference. I'm really hoping they go for a younger guy. I'm not trying to be ageist, but a younger guy might prove more stat savvy than a retread like Minaya. Now, I know they now have a whole Analytics Department to help them with a more mathematical understanding of things, but I'd want them to hire someone who contains both the number savvy and the teaching savvy in one person.
We'll see what they come up with. As far as I know, no one has turned them down for that one, yet.
