    Great point, I hadn't even considered this.

    He was supposedly excellent with the LAD pitchers.

    Sounds like Phil Nevin will be the third base coach and Harkey is returning

    Cool. Mr. 1-1 Over Derek Jeter.

    Looks like Giants fans felt about Nevin the way we felt about Espada:

    https://www.mccoveychronicles.com/20...-rockies-recap

    I, too, am eager to rag on my third-base coach after every runner cut down at home. Don’t feel guilty about this impulse. It’s only natural. However, we aren’t watching the other 29 teams around baseball, and it’s possible — probable? — that every fan base complains about their third-base coach.

    So we turn to the stats. This isn’t a perfect way to grade a third-base coach. There isn’t a “out made by a dude who stopped running halfway to home, sighed, and lied down in the grass as he waited for the tag” category. But we have the raw number of outs made at home, as well as the number of runners from second who made it home safely. The table should be sortable, but there are no guarantees:

    STATS (Click link if you want to see them)

    So what does this tell us? That Phil Nevin is very much a third-base coach. These stats were all from before Tuesday night, so he likely leads the league in getting runners thrown out at home on a single, but there’s a catch. The Giants are also hitting way more singles with a runner from second compared to the average team.

    Ah, right, well, the other teams are also getting doubles, triples, and the other ones. You know, the ones where the ball goes over the wall. Quadbles. Right, the other teams can hit quadbles with runners on base. The Giants hit singles. So Nevin will have more chances to get a runner thrown out at home.

    He’s been about average, in other words. It’s frustrating when a few of them get cut down in close proximity, as has happened in the last two weeks, but he’s probably a normal third-base coach.

    Nevin has 9 years of experience as a minor league manager (1 Indy, 1 AA, 7 AAA) and was the Giants 3B coach in 2017.

    Last year was also nevinís first year as third base coach so I would have to assume he will improve.

    The only third base coach I ever "liked" was Larry Bowa.

    Or the two guys who did a great job working with the young hitters last year... it's seriously madness if Cockrell and especially Thames don't return.

    Re: Boone's Bench: News & Rumors

    So now that they have a bench, pitching, 3B and bullpen coach how do the rumored Reggie Willits and Carlos Mendoza fit in?

    I like the sound of this.

    Remember how important Boone said relationship with Sanchez will be? 1 reason Bard was hired as bench coach. He's a former catcher, but also both advanced scouted and was immersed in analytics with #Dodgers. He will be key person with Sanchez. #Yankees

    Spoke to a source with knowledge of the situation yesterday, and neither the SWB or Trenton manager has been settled upon as of this moment. Situation is fluid, but Bobby Mitchell is expected at one of the two spots. Would expect some clarity on this in the next week, or so.

    Bryan Hoch:
    Aaron Boone said that Josh Bard is his bench coach, Phil Nevin third base coach and Reggie Willits first base coach. Nevin could run spring training, as Rob Thomson did under Joe Girardi.

    Sounds like Tony Pena will not return.

    Willits has been in the organization as a base running coordinator and hitting assistant. I guess they like him.

    Boone basically just said Bard was just like him, except he got to a managerial position first.

    Carlos Mendoza will be announced as the Yankees infield coach who will be in the dugout during games. Marcus Thames and Mike Harkey are likely to named hitting coach and bullpen coach, respectively.

    Are they doing away with the assistant hitting coach role?
