It took the Yankees 3 days after they lost to the Rangers to fire their Pitching Coach. Dave Eiland is out of a job and according to Brian Cashmen, it was not due to the performances of the Yankee Pitching Staff during the playoffs. He is not the scape goat. Whether he is or not, this decisive move shows that the Yankees are already making improvements and changes.
So here’s my question, I think Howard Johnson is a partial scapegoat for the Mets’ offense this year. GM or no GM, why is he still around? I know the Wilpons have a soft spot for Met alumni but is there a reason why HoJo is still collecting a check?
Please, please don’t tell me that if Wally Backman becomes the manager that HoJo stays.
