"The sad thing is most GMs and FOs go by wins and losses, and that's all they care about."
Texas was 35-28 when they fired their hitting coach last year. Marlins were 31-30 when they fired theirs, Indians 39-31. Of course this was only effective for 1 of the 3 teams. Rangers went up by almost a run a game and went 61-38 after. The Marlins dropped from 3.98 runs/game to 3.78 and went 41-60. Indians dropped from 4.39 runs/game to 4.32 and went 41-51 after.
"THERE IS ABSOLUTELY NOTHING WRONG WITH THIS OFFENSE"
What will happen is we'll blow Atlanta out tomorrow 15-0 and the overall runs scored at the end of the series will look fantastic.
ALL IS WELL IN BLUE JAY LAND
"Seconded. Thank god for the language barrier between him and Escobar (like you pointed out in the other thread). Yunel is the only player on the team who consistently uses the whole field."
Yunel must've learned some English because this does not apply anymore.
"I don't know the statistics on this, but I would think changing your hitting coach mid-season wouldn't benefit your team. Kinda like the very small sample you showed."
Much better to continue on for another 4 months.
I don't know why the players just don't do what they want and spite what Murphy says.
Its not like the good ol' days where Cito would bully players into doing what he wanted, and having his muscle Willay Upshaw enforce his rules.
