Yankees Kick Eiland To The Curb

In a surprising move today the Yankees have decided not to retain the services of pitching coach Dave Eiland. During a season end press conference GM Brian Cashman announced the dismissal and said it was for "private reasons".

The Yankees pitching came under fire for their performance in the American League Championship Series loss to Texas as well as A.J. Burnett's complete melt down during the regular season.

Eiland had missed a chunk of the regular season due to reasons of a private nature, but it's not thought that had anything to do with today's announcement.

If I didn't know better I would think George Steinbrenner were still alive. Unhappy with the manager's performance, the Boss firing a pitching or hitting coach was one of his classic moves.
