I wouldn't mind maybe putting Bench in there as pitching coach. Or hell, get Pete unsuspended and make him the hitting coach (... in other words, as likely as Bench being the pitching coach).
There are 162 games in a season. There are going to be many times when a lesser player hits a HR off a better player; hell it happens all the time. Brandan Freakin' Larson popped a monster shot off of Randy Johnson a couple years ago -- should the D'Backs have fired their pitching coach than? And Cueto's extremely young and is a rookie. If you didn't expect him to have his rough patches, you're stuck on cloud nine.
Just because Bench is one of the all time greats doesn't make him a quality pitching coach. Might as well try to sign Sandy Koufax to become our pitching coach with that logic.
