NEW YORK -- Former Kansas City manager Tony Pena was hired by the New York Yankees on Thursday as their first base coach.

Pena was hired as Royals manager in May 2002 and was voted AL Manager of the Year in 2003 after leading the team to an 83-79 record, its first winning season since 1994. He quit May 10 after an 8-25 start that left his overall record with Kansas City at 198-285.

Earlier this week, the Yankees hired former major league managers Larry Bowa as third base coach and Lee Mazzilli as bench coach.

Ron Guidry might become pitching coach and Joe Kerrigan bullpen coach.

Luis Sojo, who had been third base coach, is expected to become manager of Class-A Tampa of the Florida State League.

I didn't much care for the way he used the bullpen in game situations but I don't think he's an awful manager.

It would have taken a diety to win with the state of baseball the way it is.

Pena: "BUNT! DAMN YOU!"
Runner: "But I'm not batting"
Pena: "Do it anyway"
Runner: "But I don't have a ****ing bat"
Pena: "Bunt it"
Runner: "What?"
Pena: "Do it"
Runner: "No, I can't do it, you crazy bitch"
Pena: "Please?"
