Now that Cash is back for another three years, Yankee management has a lot of work ahead of them. One of the first things they need to do is to sort out the problems with the coaching staff.
According to George A. King of the New York Post, one of those possible coaching changes is releasing third base coach Bobby Meacham. Apparently, fans and media members are not the only ones who criticized the way Meacham coached third base, as players have supposedly been grumbling about some of the decisions he made waving them home when they should have been staying on third, and halting players who should have come home.
I personally thought Meacham was pretty bad, but not horrible. But check this out. According to King, if Meacham is released, it could open the door for Larry Bowa to return. Now that would be something. Girardi and Bowa together would be a vast improvement to the current coaching staff. If it means releasing Meacham to get Bowa, the Yankees better do anything they possibly can to make this happen.
George A. King/New York Post:
If Cashman makes a change it could involve third base coach Bobby Meacham, who seems to have been unfairly criticized for Robinson Cano's supbar season.
Nevertheless, some players grumbled about Meacham's work at third. If Meacham, who was brought in by Girardi, isn't retained, Larry Bowa, the Yankees' former third base coach, could return. Bowa, considered the best third base coach in baseball, signed a two-year deal with the Dodgers but has an out after this one.
