Yankees release list of guest instructors for Spring Training 10


Every Spring Training, the Yankees bring back former players to be guest instructors. They’re not interested in returning to the game professionally (although Andy Pettitte has to be the only case I’ve heard of so far to actually return to professional baseball after being an instructor), but they’re here to offer insight to the young generation of Yankees players. Here are the list of instructors for the 2014 season:

Billy Connors (36)
Goose Gossage (54)
Ron Guidry (49)
Reggie Jackson (44)
Hideki Matsui (55)
Lee Mazzilli (24)
Stump Merrill (22)
Jorge Posada (20)
Willie Randolph (30)
David Wells (33)

    Cashman has been quoted as saying: "We had a lot of problems to fix in the off season. We didn't fix all of them and we are still in the problem solving mode." That certainly is true. Cashman whiffed on signing one of the top 3 closers on the free agent market. They still think that Robertson will pick up where Rivera left off. What a mistake in judgement! They also think that Shawn Kelley will be the new eighth inning stopper. This is another mistake. You can tell me all about how many punch outs he had last season but did you see his final ERA? It was well over: 4.00 and that means he let in a lot of runs. Stephen Drew is really the best possible back up to Jeter on the market and they should sign him before someone else picks him up. He would be a good long term acquisition for the Bombers. I don't believe anyone else on their roster has both his offensive and defensive potential. Good luck Brian Cashman.

    I totally disagree about Drew, first off he's not a $14 million a year shortstop, not even close, second off, he's not worth a draft pick. I think they did the right thing in staying away from him. As far as Robertson goes, I feel he will do the job, and I also have a lot of faith in Shawn Kelly, I think their bullpen is going to surprise a lot of people. Time will tell.

    Over the past 5 years how have the Yankees won games? If you thought by their prospects that is a big no they have so much money that they " buy" their players and it works greatly I believe they should not go after Drew and hold out until the trade dead line and trade for a 3b or a SS they have a lot of success with that for example how about Alfonso Soriano he can hit 30hrs a year and they only traded P Corey Black so that is what I believe they should do. This is only my opinion though.
