Yankee Pitching Coach To Take 'Indefinite Leave of Absence'

On a somewhat surprising note, New York Yankee pitching coach Dave Eiland has taken what has been termed as an “indefinite leave of absence” from the team, which sounds a lot like what rock bands say when they really mean they’re quitting.

Current Yankee bullpen coach Mike Harkey will take over Eiland in the interim. “Personal reasons” were given by manager Joe Girardi for Eiland’s absence, but I suspect his failed attempt at creating a New York city-wide hug has more to do with it.
