    Quality control coach?

    Tim Foli, former manager of the Syracuse Chiefs, has been named the quality control coach for the Washington Nationals. I wonder what a quality control coach does. Makes sure the uniforms are spelled right?

    That smells like making up a title for someone to appease the person for not getting a certain position, say, um, manager?

    I recall that another team created such a position once before. A quick search showed it was probably Tampa Bay. Yes, I found this link to a 2008 story about Tim Bogar.

    Actually, I see we had a thread on this:

    And BTW, the Rays went to the World Series in 2008.

    IIRC, it's basically about making the sure the scouts are all basing their assessments on the same things -- an ombudsman of sorts.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    Pretty much, his job is to ensure that Bowden doesn't come within 25 miles of any of their teams facilities.

    Hope he's a better Quality control coach than he was a 3B coach.

    What did we call him, Prom Date Foli because he'd even wave home his daughter's prom date?

    Pretty sure it was Foli. I think we called Oester, "Windmill".

    Yes, even though Foli's children were homeschooled.

    FYI, homeschoolers have proms. They don't lock up their kids in the basement and never let them out of the house. Homeschoolers network and do a lot of social things that School Building Schoolers do.

    I didn't know that, about the proms. Thanks. The joke still seems out of character for what we know of Foli.

    These are taken from football teams. All football teams have offensive and defensive quality control coaches.
