I disagree about Hume. The players have said he's wonderful. He seems like a great guy for bullpen coach. Maybe Hume is a bit over his head as main pitching coach, but he shouldn't be canned just because he was forced to fill in for Ruhl.
Despite all the moves Wayne has made, the bullpen is still a mess. I don't think you can blame that on Hume though, considering most of these guys have only been here for a month, and a lot of them weren't that talented to begin with (Franklin).
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
