Rothschild Leaves Losing & Cubs Behind

By bullpenbrian - October 4, 2011 - 2:30 am Leave a comment.

Larry Rothschild got out of Dodge just in time to avoid sitting through another miserable season on the North Side.

He’s now enjoying the playoffs in his first season as the Yankees pitching coach instead of worrying about the inconsistency of Randy Wells, the health of Andrew Cashner, the flip-flopping of Jeff Samardzija or the next harbinger of another Big Z meltdown.

But changing guard to join the Bombers hasn’t been all roses, not with Rothschild inheriting a thin and over-the-hill gang of starters behind CC Sabathia.

That, however, didn’t stop Rothschild from proving his worth by patch-working the rotation together for the Yankees to win the AL East.


Rothschild At Blame For Prior & Wood?

By bullpenbrian - November 23, 2010 - 12:01 am 15 comments.

Dusty Baker is blamed for the downfall of both Mark Prior and Kerry Wood.
But what about former Cubs pitching coach Larry Rothschild?

Baker, of course, controlled the reins on how many pitches each threw and when they came out of the game. But does Larry get a free pass for not fixing the mechanical issues of Prior and Wood?
