Good anecdote. It seems Gully "likes" everyone they ask him about and advises that he can help him.

Obviously, being a coach, he is going to see kinks that he can work on, but this nonsense of bringing in gopher ball machines and claiming the fix is teaching them a two seamer is over the edge and reveals serious philosophical and practical flaws in procuring pitching talent.
