DateQuestionAnswer
2013-10-17 13:00:00 (link to chat)What are your thoughts on the Astros' new pitching coach, Brent Strom? Is he the right man for the job as they begin to bring up their young pitching prospects?
(Ashitaka1110 from Houston, TX)
I don't know much but I like what I know. He comes out of the St. Louis player development system, has big league experience as a pitching coach and a pitcher. Sounds like a solid veteran guy who knows how to work with kids in the Lunhow way. (Harry Pavlidis)
2008-07-09 13:00:00 (link to chat)Will, in your opinion, who are the top 3 pitching coaches in the game today (or employed recently)? Briefly, why?
(Rick from Chicago)
Do you mean in the game or guys like House, Wolforth, etc? I'll take this as in the game and say that if I were GM, the guys I'd want to interview to be my pitching coach would be Jim Rooney, Brent Strom, and Leo Mazzone. (Mike Maddux and Dave Duncan have jobs, so I don't think they'd be available.) (Will Carroll)
