Sandy Alomar Jr. (bench, above), Manny Acta (3B), Guy Conti (bullpen) and Jerry Manuel (1B/OF) form the foundation of Willie Randolph’s coaching corps, with Rick Down expected to be named hitting coach sometime after December 31 (at which time he’ll have fulfilled his contractual obligations to the Yankees).

Rick Peterson will continue to serve as the windbreaker-wearing guru of all things pitching.
