No Go for Joe

So Joe is coming back for another term as the leader of the Yankees much to my surprise. However saying that I am delighted that he is back as the leader of this pack and seemingly he has some assurances that the power will shift from the Tampa brain trust back towards him and his people.

The Yankees have made October baseball every year that the Yankees have been managed by Torre, winning four World Championships and appearing in six World Series. However yet again he'll need to appoint a new bench coach with the obvious choice being former Yankee Lee Mazzilli as Joe Girardi agreed to lead the Florida Marlins into the 2006 campaign.

The pitching coach job is also up for grabs but Leo Mazzone will not to that man as he's moving to the Orioles to team up with long-time good friend Sam Perlozzo. The Yankees held talks with the Braves pitching guru but were unable to reach agreement but it seems as though the Birds were always his first choice.

So now it seems as though the Yankees will look towards the White Sox Don Cooper, Dave Kerrigan, former Yankee Ron Guidry or the Giants Dave Righetti. Cooper and Ruidry are thought to be favoured by the Yankee brass but Joe Kerrigan is also highly-tipped to get the job either by choice or by default.

Now all attention turns to Brian Cashman, will he or won't he stay? Time will tell...
