I think Girardi means Yankees or taking some time off with his family, not another job.

As much as I've said the manager hire isn't going to move the needle much, I'm even more confident the bench coach/3rd base coach, etc. REALLY isn't going to be all that impactful.

Lets move onto the roster now that this housekeeping is settled. I don't really care if the hitting coach is Kevin Long or Terrance Long or Justin Long. K thx.

This seems like a sort of fun hire, so kudos. And surprises are always more "fun" than going down the expected boring road everyone predicted.

Now lets actually address the roster issues.

If Long leaves the Mets should again go outside the box and hire @TewksHitting as their next hitting coach #Mets

Tewksbary is credited with being the swing doctor for JD Martinez and Josh Donaldson (among others) and is HEAVY into the numbers etc. Would be a nice move.

More to the beats being left out of the loop, Mark DeRosa was the 6th interviewee.

Girardi may still leave, but he's not going to Washington when they lowball managers worse than we do and it's probably the least secure manager job in baseball.

I could defintely see Long (snicker) cause he ain't getting a manger job anywhere else, cause of the Murphy connection and because his own son happens to be a prospect in their system.


Why would Girardi leave the situation he's in? The Yankees are set up better than any other team right now, with the possible exception of the Dodgers.

Again I think people are misinterpreting Girardi’s comments. He sounded like he wanted to make sure his family supported him managing at all not looking to manage another team

I don't know what to make of SA viewing MC as a "contemporary thinker" in the game...

He said in an interview with Gelb that he is "data driven but also takes the human element into account" (paraphrasing) which, thankfully, is contemporary. Using the best relievers in high-leverage situations rather than in inning-specific roles is also contemporary.

What I make of SA's statement is yee-haw! he's not old-school like TC.

This would be a radical departure from Long. In the in-depth swing analysis community that Tewksbury is a part of Long is held in very low regard.

Anyone know if the Indians' pitchers were less injured than the rest of the league? I would be interested to see if the Mets staff improves once he arrives.


Yeah I recall seeing indians pitchers health was much improved. Pitchers will break but they stayed healthy.
