What bothers me the most (RE changes)


Recommended Posts

I think whats come to bother me the most in recent years is how many people we see leave our organization and do better with other coaching staffs..or come to our ogranization and do worse than they should.

If there has ever been a situation that required change in the voice and message, we are it.

We have too much tlaent to be as bad as we have been over the last couple years

well, stand by.

i posted the same idea and was loudly told i was FOS.

i guess alot of these guys like the direction our field staff is taking the team.

Not everyone is saying they like the direction the field staff is going. Everyone just doesn't see how hiring Eric Wedge is going to be any better than what we have now

Shell do you really want to go through this again? You want to get rid of the manager and coaches, fine. But using this as a reason is bs. TDawg gave you a long list of players that prove this opinion is at the very least exaggerated if not outright wrong. I will say that Dante Bichette and Ken Landreaux improved after leaving the Angels.

thats goin back a ways.

it was most accurate when you said that my opinion is jaded because my team is losing.

i made a poor attempt to quantify an emotional response to a shit w/l record by the current field staff.

jmo, i doubt this staff would be around on most other mlb teams.

This whole argument is so overblown it's absurd.


Rodney is looked at as the centerpiece of this argument, but last year was a total fluke. This season his ERA was decent but his WHIP sucked and he blew 8 saves. He was also just as bad with Detroit as he was with the Angels. He's a crappy pitcher who has sucked for the vast majority of his career.


As for Ervin Santana, this year wasn't even his best season (that would be 2008, with the Angels). We've seen him pitch like this before, it's nothing new. When he puts up a 5.00 ERA in 2014 we'll see just how much he "improved" after leaving.


Walden? He was actually better with the Angels, arguably. He was certainly a good reliever this year but his numbers are pretty much identical to what he did in 2012, save for a much improved WHIP. And as I mentioned in the other thread, Downs went to Atlanta and pretty much sucked.

if the FO feels they need to replace the coaching staff because they are ineffective then fine, but the correlation to players turning to crap upon arriving or only being good after they leave is weak sauce.  even if it were slightly true, some of that blame is on the people that brought those players in or let the other go.

I just want the GM and the manager on the same page.   Two years of conflicting views doesn't help a team, especially when it follows FOUR years of mostly GM mediocrity.


We need a fresh managerial voice and a fresh pitching coach voice, preferably on the same page as the GM.

FOURTEEN years and SEVEN years are increasingly proving to be more than enough time.

K-Rod was pretty crappy with the Mets. He's still a good reliever but he didn't improve after leaving.

I'm going to play devil's advocate here and say we actually have more evidence to support players getting WORSE once they leave. I haven't seen too many solid examples.
