Re: What went wrong with Todd Coffey?
This is only my opinion and it could be way wrong, but I've noticed that Coffey, even last year, did better with regular work. Pitch a couple days skip a day or two, pitch a couple more. Narron would pitch him 4 or 5 days in a row and then leave him sit for a week and I think both the overwork and the periods of idleness had a negative impact on his performance. After some repeated poundings brought on by poor usage patterns, it got in his head IMO.

Having better players makes "the right time" or "the big hit" happen a lot more often. PLUS PLUS
