Re: If the whole team is slumping at the plate, whose fault is it?
The execution is on the players. Coaches prepare and try to put people in situations to succeed imo. That sad truth is you could put any lineup out there right now and with the way they're swinging the bats you're gonna get the same results.
I really have no idea how hands on Dusty is behind the scenes with our approach at the plate. I don't know if it's all on Jacoby or if Dusty is in their ear telling them to hack at everything. At the very least he holds his share of the blame just by being the manager and having it going on under his watch. But yeah, I wouldn't mind it if Jacoby were fired to send a message....you're not going to fire your head coach this early and you can't bench 10 guys.
