    Prediction: He won't be unemployed for long.

    There was a quote down in the story from Leo about how he knew his days were numbered when the managerial change was made. Must have been a comfortable final couple of months of the season.

    Daniel Cabrera, Hayden Penn and Steve Trachsel are not Tom Glavine, John Smoltz and Greg Maddux.

    Is Roger McDowell's seat safe in Atlanta?

    That's the knock on Mazzone - he doesn't help young guys (i.e. Cabrera, Loewen, Penn), but he does with guys on the brink (Bedard, Guthrie).

    Despite being from Maryland, Mazzone grew up a Yankees fan. If Guidry goes, lock him in, although he could follow buddy Sam Perlozzo to Seattle, where Perlozzo is rumored to become a coach.

    He hated working for Big Stein?

    No, he is going to be fired if Mazzone is available.

    Don't any of you get it? Mazzone was the sole reason why the Orioles sucked this year!

    All of the Yankees coaches contracts expire at the end of the month... none of them are assured of being brought back.
