Mazzone to Baltimore

Postby Amazinz » Wed Oct 19, 2005 8:31 pm

FOXSports.com has learned that Mazzone likely will join the Orioles as the team's pitching coach after his talks with the Yankees broke down Wednesday.
Mazzone is expected to receive a three-year contract with the Orioles, matching the length of new manager Sam Perlozzo's deal. Mazzone and Perlozzo are long-time friends, having grown up together in Cumberland, Md.

The Orioles already have a well-regarded pitching coach, Ray Miller. But Miller is recovering from surgery to remove an aneurysm and reportedly had given the O's his blessing to hire another pitching coach.

Mazzone is widely credited with helping develop the sterling pitching staffs the Braves have enjoyed over the last 15 years — a run that has coincided with the team's 14 consecutive division championships.

According to a report on Newsday's web site, the Yankees' list of candidates to replace Mel Stottlemyre now includes Dave Righetti of the Giants, Don Cooper of the White Sox and former pitcher Ron Guidry, who most recently has been a spring training instructor.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Was about to post this... what a bummer... this seriously sucks major ass. I wanted to see what Leo could do with guys like Chuck James and Kyle Davies. I guess I'll never know. This really really really sucks. I hate the O's.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Well, if he wanted to go somewhere....I'm glad he didn't choose Boston or New York. I will root for the Orioles to win the East if it's down to those 3 teams. ;-D

Maybe I'm just missing something. Why would he want to leave everything that the Braves have done over the past decade and a half?

He probably feels like he needs a challenge. I think he definitely found one.

I think his friendship with Perlozzo one of the main factors in his deicison
