    Dave Eiland Yankee pitching coach was on leave for the past month with no explanation from the Yankees other than it was not illness or family issue.

    Odd that the NY media that writes about almost everything did not dig into to this story.

    I think someone would notice if he started managing the Rangers.

    He's back and AJ Burnett is sure happy about it:

    I'm somewhat curious too, but Ragu's post is sweet.

    He was gone three weeks. He's a public figure, but it's not like I really need to know why he needed the time away.

    So, what do the journalists think? Should the press ask for more information or look for it on their own, or do you just let it rest as a "personal matter"?

    I'd hate to embarrass someone for no reason, but where do you draw the line? How do you decide what to investigate?

    Let's say it was the manager? Would it be different then? I'd think you'd have to report on it if it was the manager.

    In NY it's a rare case that the media does not push the envelope. What they did write about was the negative impact that Eiland missing had on AJ Burnett.

    6 2/3 shutout innings today for Burnett.

    Thanks for coming back Dave.

    And thanks for not bringing Mo in with 2 outs in the 8th Joe.
