Yankees finalize 2011 coaching staff

By

The Yankees announced today that with the exception of new pitching coach Larry Rothschild, the coaching staff will return intact for the 2011 season. Tony Pena will handle bench coach duties while Mike Harkey oversees the bullpen, and Mick Kelleher and Robbie Thomson will coach first and third bases, respectively. Hitting coach Kevin Long signed his new three-year deal not long after the season ended. Dave Eiland being replaced was a surprise, but otherwise everyone was expected to return.

    We really can’t improve on Thomson at 3rd? Maybe we were spoiled by Larry Bowa, but I always feel that Thomson gets an inordinate number of runners thrown out at home.
