Finally, Somebody Gets Fired

According to Tyler Kepner of the NY Times, the Yankees fired Marty Miller, the team's strength coach. It's pretty evident that whatever this guy was doing, wasn't working. The injuries have happened to way too many people for it to be a coincidence. The interesting point in the story is that Miller was "unpopular with some players and several opted out of his program." I think red flags should have gone up as soon as the first guy opted out. Doesn't that send a message? Nobody knows the player's bodies better than the players.
Hopefully this changes things because the Yankees can ill-afford to lose anyone else. This is the best news I've gotten all day.
