Mark Newman and Damon Oppenheimer will remain in respective roles, Steinbrenner said. Changes to player development called "procedural."So let me get this straight. The 2 guys in charge of the groups that have horrible recent track records in terms of drafting and developing amateur talent, who were also presumably heavily involved in developing and following the procedures that were already in place, are being rewarded for their departmental failures by getting to keep their jobs for another season? Does that make any sense to you, Dean Ambrose?

I'm going to have to agree with you there, Dean Ambrose. Procedural changes are all well and good, but the Yankees are still going to have the same people at the top enforcing those new procedures and those people have been proven to be ineffective in those roles. The Yanks needed to take a big swing at revamping their MiL program and instead they squared around to bunt with 2 strikes. Inexplicable.
P.S.- Guess that's what I get for deviating from my norm and praising Hal yesterday.
