Newsday: Mazzone nixes Yanks
by SG

Leo Mazzone decided earlier this morning to end discussions with the Yankees, according to a person familiar with the renowned Braves’ pitching coach’s thinking.

The Yankees confirmed that talks broke down in a statement released just after 5 p.m.

The Yankees’ window to speak with Mazzone was apparently up sometime yesterday and they received a 24-hour extension, but talks didn’t progress far enough.

“The window to speak with Leo Mazzone closed at 5 p.m.,” the Yankee statement said. “Both sides agreed to end their discussions without a resolution."

Not good news. I'm guessing it was not a money issue, but likely a control issue. We'll see if any further details emerge. I'm not sure who's next in the pecking order, but I can bet he's not as good.
