What would The Boss do, as in our dearly departed George Steinbrenner, what would he do? Kevin Long, what a scam artist. When the Yankees are hitting, he gets all the credit,"oh, Kevin Long works so hard with these guys, oh he's so great." But when they are the worse team in MLB to drive in runners in scoring position, we don't hear a thing about him. A good batting coach would be able teach these guys to hit through or at least around a freakin shift, A good batting coach could make these hitters do bunt drills until they can actually lay down a bunt. Any coach could allow thier batters to choke day in and day out with bases loaded, but I don't want just any coach, I want the best, and so would The Boss. WWTBD- He would fire Kevin Long, who has simply been riding the coat tails of naturally good hitters for years, and he would make a crazy move like hiring somebody like The Warrior Paul O'neil, or Strawberry, or Wade Boggs, somedody to light a fire under this line up.
WWTBD-Larry Rothchild? He'd fire him too. Is he a pitching coach, or is that just a title? Could he coach these guys to not give up home runs every start. How can a team be expected to win when they are usually down by two or more runs by the bottom of the first. He seems clueless to me, kind of like Luther from the TV show coach. He is joke and I can't stand him. WWTBD? He would can Rothchild and make a change, like Al Lieter(my first choice), but i would even take a Greg Maddox, or a John Smoltz. That's what George would do, he would take chances, and shake things up.
WWTBD-Freddy Garcia? Release him. Nobody wants to see him ever again.
WWTBD-Phil Hughes? Trade him while you still can, he is never going to be a good starter ever again. He struggles against the Royals and we call it a good start, it's depressing to watch.
As far as Brian Cashman WWTBD? He would put Cashman on notice, because he is the one that is responsible for putting this team together afterall.
Bottom line, I watch a lot of baseball, and I am sick of watching everybody else pitch better. WWTBD? He'd fire somebody!
