Eiland catches on with the Rays

By

Via Joel Sherman, former Yankee pitching coach Dave Eiland has been hired by the Rays to work in an executive capacity, though the team has not announced it yet. I presume he’ll be able to stay in Tampa all year round, which is where he probably lives after spending so many years in the Yankees’ organization. After his month long absence this past June, maybe this is exactly what he wanted. I’d wish him good luck, but not when he’s employed by a direct competitor. Sorry Dave, nothing personal.

    I’d only be scared if he took the Yankees’ payroll with him.

    Now if Andrew Friedman is ever sporting a mysterious black eye during an interview, we’ll finally know for sure what happened to AJ last year.

    Man, I’m really curious to know what the heck happened between him and the Yanks.

    Is it bad of me to say that I expect Garza’s, Price’s and Shield’s K rate to go down?

    My hog is just too big… they didn’t like having me in the locker room.

      mindlessly regurgitating unrelated mlbtr posts is probably the most annoying thing u could do. and this is coming from someone who read big bertha’s posts during game threads.

      everyone here reads that site, theres no reason to make posts like this

    Does he still get to wear the uniform even though its an “executive position?”

    Could be more for minor league development

    I think we should organize a group hug for all of Tampa Bay.
