Please fire the batting "coach"
I can understand getting shut out 5-0 by Clayton Kershaw but Vance Worley?
Worley is a marginal pitcher at best. It ought to be like batting practice. Instead, he throws a shutuout -- the first of his utterly undistinguished career. What kind of "coach" isn't able to prepare a team better than this?
Our hitting "coach" is no goddam good. He was a terrible MLB player.
What about the two World Series titles? Those were largely due to outstanding pitching. The hitting was always very ordinary.
It's 3 days until the trade deadline and the parade of crappy second baseman -- Adrianza, Hicks, Scutaro, Uggla, Arias and the kid who played tonight -- will probably continue. The team gave up two decent prospects for Jake Peavy so a deal for Chase Utley has probably gone away.
