Anthony Flynn is Leaving & Ron Dock is Gone, What Exactly is Going On?

Anthony Flynn has been with the New York Yankees for the last 15 seasons but has decided that the 2015 season will be his last with the organization. Flynn has worked in the baseball operations department for the Yankees for the last seven years and spent the last eight years prior as the club’s video coordinator. Now Flynn will leave for XOS Digital where he will be the director of baseball marketing and sales. Good for him, congratulations.

Ron Dock was the organization’s intervention coordinator based in Tampa, Florida where he worked with Yankees employees and players who had addiction problems, family situations, depression problems and legal issued. Dock is not a well-known name, he was more of a behind the scenes type guy, but he was integral to the organization. Ask Darryl Strawberry, Dwight Gooden and also Slade Heathcott. Dock worked with anyone and everyone and was well respected inside the organization.

What exactly is going on in New York? All the, for lack of a better term, old timers are leaving and retiring while the new blood presumably is coming in. It remains to be seen whether this will be a good thing or a bad thing. Either way I have a feeling both Dock and Flynn will be missed in the Bronx more than we know, ask CC Sabathia.
