    Yankees contact former Phillies manager Bowa news services

    ESPN baseball analyst Larry Bowa was contacted Thursday by GM Brian Cashman and manager Joe Torre about the possibility of Bowa joining the Yankees staff as one of the team coaches next season.

    "I haven't made any decisions yet," Bowa told ESPN.

    Bowa, who is in his first season as a Baseball Tonight analyst, previously served as the manager of the Padres (1987-88) and Phillies (2001-04). Bowa was fired by the Phillies on the final weekend of the 2004 season after leading the team to a 337-308 record. Known for a fiery personality, he was 81-127 in 1½ seasons with San Diego.

    He has also served as a third base coach for the Phillies, Angels, and Mariners in his career.

    New York has two coaching openings following the departures of bench coach Joe Girardi and pitching coach Mel Stottlemyre.

    Bowa is scheduled to work for ESPN at the World Series in Houston starting Monday.

      Someone needs to hire John Kruk as a coach so I don't have to listen to him drone on about the Astro's inept offense on baseball tonight.
