Mel Stottlemyre, Lee Elia not returning to Mariners coaching staff

Damn…just as Stott was going to teach King Felix a knuckle curve folly-floater.

Mel Stottlemyre and Lee Elia will not be part of the coaching staff of new Mariners’ manager Don Wakamatsu, The Seattle Times has learned.

Stottlemyre, 67, served the 2008 season as Mariners’ pitching coach after a 10-year stint with the Yankees. He said he heard over the weekend from Wakamatsu, who told him he had decided to bring in a new pitching coach.

“I had a desire to come back, but at the same time, I let them know that a new manager should be able to bring in his own coaching staff,’’ Stottlemyre said on Monday.

It is not immediately known who will be the new pitching coach. However, it is not expected to be former A’s and Mets coach Rick Peterson, who had been a rumored candidate.

The 85% of us who work feel little sympathy for Lee Elia.

Happy to see Stottlemyre go, sad to hear that Peterson won't have a shot at being the new pitching coach. I've always liked that space-cadet, Victor Zambrano fiasco or no.

I'm publishing an extensive interview with Peterson next week. Biomechanics, pitcher abuse at the amateur level, psychology, work he's doing with Dr. Andrews... he's really something.

Run right downtown and PRINT IT!

He was sick and tired of the Phillie-itis during October.
