No Yankees interview for Mazzone

Posted by: Chad Jennings - Posted in Misc on Nov 15, 2010 Print This Post Print This Post | Email This Post Email This Post

Just saw Brian Cashman in the lobby.

Scott Aldred is next up in the pitching coach interview process. That will happen later this week, when Cashman gets out of Orlando.

Leo Mazzone will not be interviewed.

Cashman said he has no plans of meeting with Mazzone, who turned down the Yankees job before Ron Guidry was hired.

For the here and now, Cashman said there is nothing on the verge of happening and he does next expect to finalize any sort of trade or signing during these meetings.

    This is good news, I’d think.

    Chad here is a Cashman question for consideration. Who will Keving Long be working with this winter?

    I’m going to a Yankees game next summer when I go to NY for my long belated high school graduation trip. Where is the best place to sit? I can’t afford the good seats but I want to know where is a good place to enjoy the game.

    Suppose they gave a blog and nobody came?

    Chad – sounds like you really enjoyed being home. Dorothy had it right, there’s no place like it.

    tyanksfan36 – there’s so many choices. Depends what your looking for, in addition to a Yankee win. We’ve sat in the main level, anywhere between first and the RF foul pole, and loved it. We’ve been in the Audi club, the Mohegan Sun sports bar and enjoyed that – though I don’t know if I’d take a full season of it. The Bleacher Creatures seem to love that area. Depends on the experience you want.

    If this is your first trip, I would recommend getting there early, so you can walk around the place and take it all in.

    I’m not one that thinks that Theo is all the competent, but on the pitching coach issue, he identified who he wanted and signed him. The Yankees are dithering.

    all the good posters have left…

    Yes it will be my first trip. I think ill only be able to afford either the grandstand or the bleachers. I told my dad that I could sit in the furthest seat from the field and ill be happy as long as I’m there. They don’t even have to win. I wanted to go to a game back in 2000 when I went to NY on vacation but we only spent 2 days in the city and never made it there.
    I am moving to Connecticut in 2012 so ill probably get season tickets then, I just want to take in a game on my vacation.

    Unless Cashman has a mystery pitching coach in mind, Scott Aldred should complete the interview process.
    Gil Patterson and Mike Harkey were interviewed last week.

    Not that we would have wanted Kuroda, but his signing is illustrative of the problem of waiting for Pettitte to decide.

    Interesting that he totally passed on Mazzone because he was offered the job “once before.” Since when in baseball does that rule out a candidate if he’s the most qualified? Not saying Mazzone is, but he certainly has the reputation to deserve an interview if the team is truly looking for the best candidate. It’s just an odd repsonse, especially considering Mazzone specifically took the Oriole job so he could work for his longtime friend Sam Perlozzo. There’s obviously something else to this story.
