We`ve had a flurry of news the past two days and lost among it all has been the announcement of the coaching staff. Apparently this is old news but we must`ve missed it.

Manager- Joe Girardi
Bench Coach- Tony Pena
First Base- Mick Kelleher
Third Base- Rob Thomson
Pitching Coach- Dave Eiland

Sojo Back?

The much maligned Bobby Meacham looks likely to be fired this offseason. I`m okay with this though I`d rather just move him to a different role. Maybe just switching him and Tony Pena.

However, the big problem I have is with his potential replacement. Luis Sojo is being considered. We all remmeber how bad Sojo was at third base coach a few years ago. Don't replace a problem with another problem.

The Coaching Staff

Although I know next to nothing about coaching major league baseball I`m going to speculate about it anyway.

I`m happy with most of the coaching staff. However, Bobby Meacham has to go. How many times were Yankees gunned down at the plate this year? I think they need to fire him. Here`s my absurd speculative solution:

1) Fire Bobby Meacham
2) Move Tony Pena to third base, he`s been around these players for a while now and should know when they can make it home and not.
3) Move Rob Thomson to first base. If he chooses to quit then replace him with Luis Sojo.
4) Hire Willie Randolph as the bench coach.
