Quick Hit: Cashman Fires Dillon Lawson
It's about time the Yankees did something. We can argue about what that something (or somethings) should be, but doing nothing would have been unacceptable. Brian Cashman has never fired a coach in the middle of the season, but following today's loss to the Cubs, he announced the firing of MLB Hitting Coach, Dillon Lawson.
Of particular intrigue: Cashman noted that the next Hitting Coach would be from outside of the organization AND would likely be in Colorado with the Yankees by the end of the All-Star break.
We'll have more on this story in the coming days, but everyone needs to be accountable for the mess we've seen this season. This is a start.
