If we're going to blame him for a lot of the failures, he also deserves some credit.
I would like to see a change, but I want to see a change in philosophy more than anything. It's a broader problem than just Jacoby.
I don't know if he would want to do it because he has a pretty good gig at MLB but "The Mayor" Sean Casey could rake! Lifetime .300 hitter. I would love his enthusiasm and positive attitude on the beach. He had a great work ethic, and would work day and night with the hitters if ask too. He would have instant respect and credibility as a hitting coach.
