Are you telling me that Manny might finally be coming back into reality?
Hopefully, this will turn into the realization that Lenny is NOT PART OF THE SOLUTION. Theo Epstein did more of a hitting coach's job day one with the Sox when he gave them all copies of Ted Williams's book "The Science of Hitting" and made it required reading. Mitchell Page was a real hitting coach. Lenny Harris has ZERO CREDENTIALS. All he has is the record for most career pinch hits. Let him coach pinch hitters. Young players in a lineup need a real hitting coach who understands mechanics and has a track record of actually doing the job IN THE MAJOR LEAGUES. Page always had pen in paper tracking every pitch of every at bat. Lenny sits on the bench eating sunflower seeds.
Three coaches need to go or get reassigned.
1)Tim Tolman: Acta's friend, experienced Winter League manager, great logistician for planning Spring Training Activities. Has no business coaching 3B
2) Lenny Harris: Career pinch hitter. With all the injuries, sign him as a PH and let him show the rest of the bunch how it is done. Then hire an actual experienced PROVEN major league hitting coach. The hitters deserve as much as the pitchers get from St. Claire.
3) Rick Aponte: Acta friend and someone who doesn't seem to be able to send pitchers out of the bullpen able to actually throw strikes.
firelennyharris.com is actually available. I am amazed that none of the Nats have purchased it.
