Father's Day Horror: Mel Stottlemyre is no longer a Yankee fan


Watching his son coach the Mariners — through Wednesday, they had the lowest earned-run average in the American League — has been therapeutic for Stottlemyre. He studies every game on television and notes every nuance: the way Stottlemyre Jr. interacts with his pitchers in the dugout, the way he reacts when the pitchers are laboring.

"I don't want to tell Junior this too many times," he said, "but I watch his every move. I've been a Yankee fan all my life, but it's been a slow move to where I'm a No. 1 Mariner fan right now."
