    I understand your feelings about Coffey. However, he did have a 3.58 era last year. It has jumped 2.5 runs to 6.04 this year. It is possible he simply had a terrible year, and I think he should be given a second chance in spring training to show he is still the player he was in 2006. He has dug a big hole for himself, and he should be given the opportunity to dig himself out.

    It's also possible he was getting lucky last year........not too many effective RP's have a career WHIP above 1.40

    that is a hilarious visual. i would love Mac to change his mind in the middle of coffey's sprint and point him to to the dugout. that would suffice after all the painful outings we've been forced to sit through this season.

    AA seems more appropriate.

    He has the arm and the pitches, but he doesn't have it between the ears. He needs to be sent down to work on his command.

    Does anyone remember Brad "the animal" Lesley ?
    He would growl, snarl, hollar, etc and that was his trademark.
    Of course he was pitching great. Then when he started to slide back, the act didnt do much for people.

    Well I know this is just something Coffey probably has done forever but when you are pitching like he is, it just brings extra attention to himself.
    To me, if a guy is going to have a "gimmick" like that, you better be pretty good !
    At least an era in the 3's and not in the 6's

    Every year he has given up more hits than ip. I just dont understand from these #'s why anyone thinks he will be that good of a pitcher. I mean he can improve but I still see him being very very hittable.

    basically these #'s are ip-h-era-whip-ba

    That is true- he will need to reduce the number of hits he gives up if he wants to be successful in the bullpen.
