Obviously we don’t have a choice in the matter, and we still have no idea who Manager Buck Showalter is going to choose to retain. What we do know is that the Yankees are looking for a pitching coach and Kranny’s name is popping up everywhere. This according Dan Connelly

With news today that the Yankees have fired pitching coach Dave Eiland, and knowing that Kranitz could be out with the Orioles, it only makes sense that there could be a reunion between Girardi and Kranitz with the Yankees.

Girardi currently is without a Yankees’ contract for 2011, but general manager Brian Cashman has gone on record saying that getting Girardi signed is a top priority. When and if that happens, don’t be surprised if Kranitz’s name surfaces as a candidate for the Yankees’ pitching coach opening.
