Since the Mules were humiliatingly beaten by scoring just one run against the Boston Red Sox on the wild card, the pressure was going to be on the coaches rather than the players they follow for the 2022 season.
Thames’s job has been in jeopardy for several months. Thames saw his career begin in 2002 with the Yankees, played six seasons with the Detroit Tigers, returned to the Yankees in 2010 and ended his career in 2011 with the Angeles Dodgers.
