Re: Brook Jacoby new Reds Hitting coach
After thinking about this for a while, I've come to the conclusion that the Reds are going to keep Dunn throughout his deal and Jacoby represents his last chance to become more conventional - for lack of a better word. The Reds may believe that if he sacrifices walks for more contact - regardless of what outcome that contact is - that he will be more productive. But if he keeps putting up roughly the same numbers across the board that he's put up over the last 4 years, then I believe the Reds will either trade him in his walk year or let him walk. Jacoby would be his 3rd or 4th hitting coach since he's been a regular here and if Dunn doesn't improve with Jacoby, the Reds may feel that he's a lost cause.
