With Gullet's talent and these pitchers we could see something really special...I think of when Wright went to ATL after all his ups and downs in Cleveland...and everybody questioned the pick up by ATL....look at him now...and I bet he is not as successful in NY as he was in ATL.
Oh well, that's all for now
Not to argue about Wright but I believe that Wright was also healthy last year for the first time in many years. I do believe that he was a headcase and that Cox and his staff do wonders for pitching...I just believe that Wright had some help with health also.
As far as Gullet improving these guys...I haven't seen him do anything in a long time. I truly believe that it is time to look for another pitching coach. (Actually it was time 3 years ago)

I remember one time going out to the mound to talk with Bob Gibson. He told me to get back behind the batter, that the only thing I knew about pitching was that it was hard to hit.
