The rivalry continues, I guess...
Breaking now, it appears that the guy that was considered a top candidate for the Yankees next hitting coach is no longer in the running. The Red Sox have reportedly snagged Chili Davis...
Rod Bradford of WEEI.com reports:
"According to multiple major league sources, the Red Sox have agreed to terms with Chili Davis to become their next hitting coach... The Sox chose Davis from a pool that also included Red Sox
hitting coordinator Tim Hyers, Red Sox Double-A hitting coach Rich Gedman, Angels hitting coordinator Paul Sorrento and former Cubs hitting
coach Bill Mueller."
Wouldn't it be a hoot if we just went out and tried to now hire Bill Mueller? I kid... I kid.
I guess now we will soon know the future Yankee hitting coach. Reports are it's between Dave Magadan, Dante Bichette, Marcus Thames and James Rowson.
