Mel Stottlemyre has agreed to come back and be a spring training instructor for the Yanks. After having been squeezed out by the boss, Mel returns at the behest of Brian Cashman.
Stottlemyre will settle Ron Guidry into his new job as pitching coach and maintain a sense of continuity to a coaching staff that has seen much turnover. It's a good sign, too that Cashman seems to be re-asserting his decision- making authority. I'd hate to see a return to the Bronx Zoo.
