How did he do with that young promising pitching?
Didn't he have some pretty decent veteran pitchers at that time 2001-2005 Freddy, Moyer, Sele, Halama and Abbott with a solid defense behind them and a very potent offense in that big ballpark?
They had some fine years and then they had some rough times.
2001 Scored 927 runs, Allowed 627 runs
2002 Scored 814 runs, Allowed 699 runs
2003 Scored 795 runs, Allowed 637 runs
2004 Scored 698 runs, Allowed 823 runs
2005 Scored 699 runs, Allowed 751 runs
TINSTAAPP, Spring Fields. Too, he was able to oversee Garcia's emergence into a true upper level arm, keep Moyer chugging along, and get solid production from BOR feeders and mid-level starters.
