Larry Rothschild and Damn Yankees
In a world where there are no secrets, somehow Larry Rothschild, our pitching coach whom I believe was still under contract, has taken a similar position with the Yankees. He cites the ubiquitous "family reasons", since the Yanks' spring training home is in his native Tampa, as well as several scheduled Yankee series every year.
Now, there are those, such as Mike D, who are sipping the bub right now over this news. Others, such as Al Yellon, are not so pleased. The Cubs seem to think they will make an announcement about his replacement after Thanksgiving, which means that they have someone in mind.
Dare I dream - the Mad Dog? I mean, who knows more about pitching than our current special assistant to Jim Hendry?
