Case You Missed It

Larry Rothschild was named as the Yankees new pitching coach.  Ben Kabak has the details. And for more on Rothschild, check out It’s About the Money, Stupid.

Former Yankee Jim Lerityz was acquited–Steve Lombardi’s got the links.

Yeah, there was some more posturing on the Jeter negotiations–from Jeter’s side–but nothing worth noting. And in the Boston Globe, Nick Cafardo reports, “Word is the Yankees are in the $115 million-$120 million range for five years, while the Rangers are determined to match whatever it gets up to. The Nationals are another team aggressive in this hunt.”

Hope most of you have a short work week as the big boid looms on Thursday. We’ll be here.

I've a very short work week, just today. Driving tomorrow & next Monday. I'll probably check in from time to time. Happy Thanksgiving all.

Are Front Offices really that leaky that not only do we 'know' what the Yankees are offerg Lee, but we also 'know' how Texas is going to respond? Do these reporters really have decent sources? Are these leaks just BS to try and manipulate the market?

Cashman usually holds all info close to the vest, and usually attacks with pure stealth. Damon. Swisher. Teix. Not a hint of a rumor and then boom. Is any of this Lee info worth anything???

[3] Also, Ryan was recently quoted as saying Texas couldn't match Lee and would rely on other attractions to entice him to stay. So much of these reports are conjecture, and what is leaked usually comes from the agents. After all, who else has more of an interest in not only floating the Yankees' offer, but suggesting another team will match?

In a giant sample size the pitchers that Larry Rothschild coached struck out more batters per PA and walked fewer batters per PA. That's good! I wonder how many coaches stay in a setting long enough to accumulate anything close to a reliable statistical record. I'm guessing not many.
