Coaching staff shuffle

from Ty Kepner -

General Manager Brian Cashman confirmed to reporters that he expected to ask Mick Kelleher to be the newest Yankees coach.

Kelleher, 61, was the organization’s defensive coordinator last season and would coach first base for the Yankees. He played 11 seasons in the majors, all as an infielder, from 1972 through 1982. Rob Thomson would move to third-base coach from bench coach, and Tony Peña would move to bench coach from first base.

Good moves, although anyone would be better than Bobby Meacham at third (sorry Bobby).

UPDATE 11/8 8:53 p.m.: Willie Randolph has unfortunately signed on to be Milwaukee's bench coach.

- Dodgers close in on Manny:

The Los Angeles Dodgers have made a contract offer to Manny Ramirez that would give the 36-year-old free-agent outfielder the highest average annual value in the history of the franchise and the second-highest average annual value in baseball.

... indications are it is either two years for $50 million or three years for $75 million.
