A welcome and critical change

September 12, 2014 | 3 comments | in Farm System | by SJK

In the past, we’ve compared Yankee officials to Supreme Court justices in that once you’re in the organization, you only leave if it’s by your own choosing — a.k.a lifetime appointments.

Well one of the lifetime appointments has decided to leave, and it’s a very important and welcome change for an organization that has failed miserably in developing its own talent in recent years.

NY Post:

According to voices inside and outside the Yankees’ organization, the minor league development program will have a new leader next year, The Post has learned.

Mark Newman, a senior vice president of baseball operations based in Tampa, Fla., is believed to be retiring after 26 years with the organization — the past 15 in charge of a minor league system that has been criticized for not sending position players to the big leagues.

The process of Newman leaving is far enough down the road that Trey Hillman, a former Yankees minor league manager, ex-Royals manager who also managed in Japan and former Dodgers bench coach under Don Mattingly, is being touted as Newman’s successor.

Hillman rejoined the Yankees this year as a special assistant to the major and minor league operations.

Mark was nice enough to give us several interviews over the years, and we wish him well as this chapter of his life ends. However, it’s not our job to cheerlead and we must call a spade a spade. The farm system has been incredibly poor over the last few years, and it’s a huge reason why the Yankees have a $200 million crap roster. It’s time for BIG changes in this organization.

What’s the point?

WFAN:

But ace Masahiro Tanaka is still determined to pitch for the Bombers before the regular season comes to an end, and the organization is fully behind him.

The rookie threw a three-inning simulated game, tossing 45 pitches, at Yankee Stadium prior to New York’s loss to the Rays on Tuesday.

According to manager Joe Girardi, the All-Star could return to the rotation following one more outing, whether that’s another simulated game or an instructional-league start in Tampa.

Seriously, what the point? The Yankees are predictably not making the playoffs. Why risk Tanaka?

PRESS RELEASE FROM STEINER SPORTS:
