Meacham Will Not Return
According to Peter Abraham, 3rd base coach Bobby Meacham will not be returning to the Yankees next season. If this comes as a surprise to you than perhaps you didn't pay attention to all the running miscues he was responsible for. This is a big change in the coaching dynamic since Meacham was one of Girardi's picks, and was someone Girardi leaned heavily on for advice. Because he leaned so heavily on Meacham, he ignored Tony Pena, and several of his veteran players took issue with this. Personally, I think Meacham was not a good 3rd base coach, and I would have been surprised to see him back next season.
