OTOH, their continued employment is heavily dependent on Jerry's continued employment. If his coaches just sit on their hands when there are correctible problems, they're apt to end up carpooling with him to pick up their unemployment checks.
Actually, I don't see how telling Jerry that his pet 6-hole hitter needs to work more on hitting low sliders, or that his go-to MR guy could keep the ball down better with a few tweaks would be hazardous to their employment. If Jerry disagrees with feedback like that, then he made some bad hires.
