The Yankees coaching staff is rounding into shape. Yesterday, Lee Mazzilli was officially hired as Joe Torre’s bench coach. According to the New York Post, Luis Sojo has been offered the managerial job at Single A Tampa, as the Bombers prepare to announce that Tony Pena will be their new first base coach:
“It looks like I am going to be in Tampa and I will be happy [to be home],” Sojo told The Post from Venezuela yesterday. “I talked to [GM Brian Cashman yesterday] and they wanted to make a move, and what can you do. It’s something you can’t control.”
Good luck, Luis. Something tells me you’ll be back someday.
