Yankees' Mel Stottlemyre Leaving the Team
by SG

(New York -WABC, October 12, 2005) - New York Yankees pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre said Wednesday he will definitely not be returning to the Bronx Bombers, but isn't sure if he is retiring from baseball.
Stottlemyre said his last game as a Yankees was their loss Monday night to the Angels in Game 5 of the American League Division Series. He said he made the decision to leave the Yankees back in May, but did not plan to announce it until the season ended.

The 63-year-old said he was looking forward to returning to his winter home in Seattle. He did not know if he was retiring from baseball.

Seattle manager Mike Hargrove said the hometown Seattle Mariners were not currently considering Stottlemyre for their vacant pitching coach job.

Yankee Manager Joe Torre, expected to address the media today, was a no show. There was no date set for his highly-anticipated question and answer session with the media.

However, several Yankee players were at the clubhouse to clean out their lockers.

Something tells me this is just the start of what's going to be a hectic offseason. I wish Mel good health, but I'm not sad to see him go.
