The pitching coach search is on hold while the meetings go on, because they have to be conducted at the Stadium. Cashman said the candidates are getting “homework” and they have to use the video equipment and other facilities for the interviews. Mike Harkey and Gil Patterson have interviewed and Triple-A pitching coach Scott Aldred will be interviewed this week. Cashman would not say if Rick Peterson, the former Met pitching coach who was recently let go by the Brewers, would be a candidate, though he did praise Peterson’s pitching acumen. Ex-Braves coach Leo Mazzone is NOT a candidate, Cashman said. “No, we’re not going to interview Leo,” Cashman said. “Leo turned down the Yankee job once. He was offered the job before Gator (Ron Guidry) in 2006 and he went to Baltimore.”
Hmmm…I suppose that Hell has no fury like a Cashman scorned…when it comes to the job of Yankees pitching coach.
