Look what people have to say about the RLYW!

CAIRO just takes the Marcels and changes the underlying assumptions and components in a bunch of ways that make the Yankees look better.

Wow, two stupid posts in one day. I think you’ve reached your yearly quota.

I don’t know if any of you current posters were around for that, but if so, I just can’t understand how you can call yourselves Yankee fans. Pathetic quitters is what you sounded like. Of the lame posts I could stand to read, the only person who had any confidence in the Yankees at that point was a (yeesh) Red Sox fan.
Jeter is King

Quite the attitude you have SG. Maybe you should shitcan this blog and join Steve at WasWatching? Or follow some other stupid team that has made the PS 15 of the last 17 years. Jeez… and some people think Yankee fans are entitled.

NJ.com - Carig: New Yankees pitching coach Larry Rothschild inherits staff filled with talent…

NEW YORK — In his nearly four decades in baseball, Larry Rothschild had never dealt with what awaited him on Tuesday, when he sat in front of a monitor at Yankee Stadium.

General manager Brian Cashman transformed a video room near the Yankees’ dugout into a simulator, designed to determine whether he had found his next pitching coach.

Rothschild’s mission, if he chose to accept it, was to break down six hours of film featuring Yankees pitchers CC Sabathia, Phil Hughes and A.J. Burnett. He would return the next day to tell Cashman how he would prepare each for a start.

It amounted to a 48-hour standardized exam, one the 56-year-old Rothschild apparently aced.

Time will tell if Rothschild will be a good pitching coach for the Yankees, but I love the process Brian Cashman used in deciding on him.

For what it’s worth, here are a couple of articles from Another Cubs Blog about the effect Rothschild may have had on Cubs pitchers.

Larry Rothschild and walks.
Larry Rothschild and home runs.

The executive summary is Cubs pitchers had fewer walks and more strikeouts after being coached by Rothschild, with no change in home run rate.

Sounds like FIP heaven to me.
