Rothschild New Yankees Pitching Coach

I have to admit I never saw this one coming. I don't recall Larry Rothschild's name being mentioned as a possibility to replace Dave Eiland. But that's the case- Rothschild was named the new Yankees pitching coach today, receiving a three year contract.

Rotschild comes to the Yankees with a pair of World Series rings. He won his first as the bullpen coach for the 1990 Cincinnati Reds and was the pitching coach of the 1997 Florida Marlins.

He was also the first manager in the Tampa Bay Devil Rays history, holding the job from 1998-2001. He was the Chicago Cubs pitching coach since 2002 and had informed the team on October 11 that he would invoke his option for 2011. But those plans changed when the Cubs hired Mike Quade as the full time Cubs manager.
