A-Rod on if he would ever manage

Yankee great and current Yankee special instructor Alex Rodriguez discusses if he's actually done playing. Would he ever consider managing?

Marly Rivera ESPN Writer 

Yankees reliever Dellin Betances, who had an intentional walk called-off by manager Joe Girardi in July of last year after he threw a ball that sailed over catcher Brian McCann's head and hit the backstop, told me this about implementing dugout signals for intentional walks: "I had an issue with that last year, where I overthrew the ball [vs. Brandon Crawford on July 23, 2016] and the other team could've scored. So it does make it easier in those terms. It avoids those situations, but it does take away a little drama."

$153M man Jacoby Ellsbury says he plans on talking to Joe Girardi about the manager's thoughts on possibly batting either Brett Garner or Ellsbury toward the bottom of the order.

How the once-mighty have fallen

The Yankees have made the postseason just once in the last four seasons, albeit a one-game wild-card playoff. Prior to that, they missed the playoffs just once over a span of 18 years. (ESPN Stats & Info)

An interesting idea to speed up the game from Yankees manager Joe Girardi. Borrowing from the NFL, Girardi said he would have small listening devices for batters to receive signs. For pitchers and catchers, they could use them to change signals.

Jacoby Ellsbury, Matt Holliday, Chris Carter, Brett Gardner and Chase Headley were hitting in the batting cages inside the Yankees complex. A Yankees coach said Ellsbury's swing "already looks better than last year".

Interesting perspective from Yankees ace Masahiro Tanaka on implementing a dugout signal for intentional walks: "Perhaps it will take away some of the drama out of baseball. But, if you are just talking from the standpoint of a pitcher, it's an advantage because there is no chance of the ball being overthrown over the catcher's head or anything like that. Also, last year, Gary Sánchez almost hit a home run off an intentional walk, so it avoids that situation too. But also, intentional walks are something that can throw a pitcher off rhythm a little bit. When you are pitching out, the balls that you are throwing are light tosses. And then all of a sudden you have to go back into the game and throw 100 percent to the next batter. So perhaps not having to do that will keep you in rhythm."

It sounds like Alex Rodriguez will be adding to his TV responsibilities. He and YES are in talks about a role, network spokesman Eric Handler said. It would be easy to see A-Rod doing some Yankee broadcast. A-Rod has already worked on Fox's playoff coverage. YES and Fox are part of the same company.

Alex Rodriugez said he doesn't see managing his future: "I'm trying to get my life back in order," Rodriguez said. "I'm trying to manage my daughters and, most of the time, they are managing me."
