What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
How much do think a new hitting instructor would have kept Josh, MY, Kins, Nap, and Cruz more consistent? It was reported that MY and Kins recommended to Murphy to move closer toward the plate to take the outside part of the plate away from the opposing pitcher. So the question becomes, what the heck was Coolbaugh doing?
Ask Clint Hurdle.
I'd rather have Clint Hurdle managing... that way, he could drop an occasional hit to the hitting coach... lol
I have to confess that I am confused about the duties and responsibilities of a hitting coach are at the major league level. I've read some on the subject and I hear occasionally from our resident apologist TAG, that hitters by nature don't want to be coached unless they initiate a request for assistance. So, here is my take on a hitting coach. He is the person who gets fired FIRST if the offense is lame for any period of time that management deems 'long enough.'
