Steve Cohen appears to be rebuilding the Muts with former Yankees GM Gene Michael in mind

January 19, 2022 02:34PM
Imitation is the sincerest former of flattery.

New York Muts owner Steve Cohen, in his attempt to build a winner at Citi Field, appears to be modeling his ballclub after the New York Yankees of the 1990s. Consider this: new general manager Billy Eppler studied under current Yankees GM Brian Cashman, who studied under ex-Yankees general manager Gene Michael. Muts manager Buck Showalter was skipper of the Yankees when Michael was GM. And Showalter just hired former Yankees prospect Glenn Sherlock as his bench coach, which led to this observation from SNY’s Andy Martino:

The Muts are suddenly a team built in many ways in the image of the Gene Michael-era Yankees. The Yankees connections -- and to people who were their at the foundation of their latest dynasty -- continue to run very deep with new Muts hires. Glenn Sherlock was a minor league manager who championed Mariano Rivera’s talent in the early 1990s.
