Yankees: Start clean on team, fire hitting coach

The New York Yankees are facing a very significant offseason, where the upper echelons of the team will have to define the strategyia to follow if they want to win the World Series as soon as possible, and maybe that means a cleanup of players, staff members and even manager and general manager. With everything this on the table, the first low of the low season of MLB for the Yankees.

According to information from Lindsey Adler of The Athletic, the Yankees have decided to thank their hitting coach, Marcus Thames, for not renewing his contract heading into the 2022 season, which means his first loss for the following season. . NJ.com’s Brendan Kuty spoke to Thames shortly after his firing and mentioned that management “wants to go in another direction.”

They made their decision. The only thing I hate is that we couldn’t win a championship. They want to go in another direction and I suppose that I was not going to be that person who could lead them to overcome that hill.

Thames played in MLB from 2002 to 2011 and was part of teams like the Dodgers, the Yankees and the Tigers themselves. He hit 112 career home runs and began his dugout career in 2016, when the Yankees named him hitting coach, a position he has held until today.

I am a fan of the San Francisco Giants, a number one defender of Barry Bonds and a critic of the Los Angeles Dodgers. Fernando Tatis Jr., Juan Soto and Ronald Acuña are the future of baseball, Mike Trout is overrated, and the Astros deserved to be taken away from the World Series for cheating. Besides baseball, I also enjoy soccer, football, basketball, and just about any other game that includes a ball or a ball. I am also an amateur musician, penniless gamer and very nerdy.
