3:20PM: Asked about the coaching changes, Jeff Gorton said "As far as Jeff Beukeboom, we met with Jeff and we agreed on both sides to offer him another job. He wanted to do something else so we are going to put him in another role, yet to be defined, but definitely part of the Rangers going forward. As far as his replacement, that is ongoing and we are trying to figure that out. I know there are rumors about who is going to be there that you want to ask me but I can't answer that because we don't have the answer yet. Hopefully soon but not right now. As far as Jeff Beukeboom, he is part of the organization and we look forward to his new role."
Did you want more experience, "it's always nice to have experience, Jeff had experience, it's just a mutual thing and we are going to find a better role for him right now. As we move forward, who will replace him, experience or not, we will see. We will talk to some people and hopefully have results soon."
