Let's see... Moehler is coming around. Dempster had a solid start Dempster article
Bruce Chen is much improved. Chen article
Jimmy Haynes looks better this year than ...uh, ever! Elmer Dessens...ditto! Dessens comment - see 04.05
He somehow got Mark Wohlers to throw strikes...now that was a miracle. Wohlers article
He revived Pete Harnisch's career. While your thinking of it, look up Steve Parris and Ron Villone's stats to see who their pitching coach was during their 'career year's.
...and that's just the recent stuff.
Here's another little trick, go to Google and type in "best pitching coach in baseball" (with the quotes) and see whose name shows up. Probably Joe Kerrigan (who's no longer a pitching coach) and Don Gullett...that's all.
Hopefully this answers your question.
