Meacham (Like Many Baserunners) Out At 3rd

Posted by Mark McCray |

Ed Price/Star Ledger:

The Yankees will not renew the contract of third-base coach Bobby Meacham, the team said today.

Also, Rich Monteleone will not return as special pitching instructor, according to a member of the organization who was told of the move but asked not to be named since he is not authorized to announce the move.

Meacham, a former Yankees infielder, was brought to the staff by manager Joe Girardi, who had Meacham as his third-base coach with Florida in 2006.

No replacement for Meacham has been named, and the Yankees could not say whether the rest of the staff will remain intact. General manager Brian Cashman was not immediately available for comment.
Well, you could see this one coming.  When the players are voicing their own concerns over Bobby Meacham, upper management is soon to follow.

If the Dodger's don't make it to the World Series, the question then becomes, "can the Yankees entice Larry Bowa to jump ship and reboard in the Bronx?  Probably not, but that doesn't mean they shouldn't try.

Hat-tip to River Ave. Blues

Good move. I doubt Bowa would come back but I'd sure be happy if he did.
