take heart, little juney

Tino Martinez might end up back with the Yankees after all.

Although the former Bombers first baseman hasn't yet decided if he'll continue playing, if he opts for retirement it's possible he could be hired by the Yanks in some off-the-field capacity.

GM Brian Cashman acknowledged that sort of opportunity was discussed after the Yanks declined Martinez's option for next season, but said it was not something that had been explored in depth.

"It came up briefly," Cashman said, likening Martinez's character to revered former Yankee outfielder Paul O'Neill . "He's a guy that's one of those who rarely come along. If you can try to keep them involved, it's always a good thing." [daily news]

  • Aww. It's nice to see my image put to use, thanks.

    As for Teeeeno, I love the guy. I'd like to see him get a role in the organization... just not one where he's playing in games.

  • I do lupitude... I do. :D

    he's always said he wanted to live at least part time, and work, in NY after his playing days were over... that would be almost as good...

  • hm, I don't see him announcing... for some reason his voice is all weirdly high and nasal on air and he would probably drive people crazy :) plus I think if he does anything yankee related he's gonna want to be on the field. jmo.

  • Yeah, but that's why I didn't see a fit for him right now.. unless it's in Tampa maybe.
