DateQuestionAnswer
2010-10-25 13:00:00 (link to chat)It seems the one thing Oakland had going for itself was their ability to develop their pitching prospects into fine pitchers - better probably than any other team. With their pitching coach Curt Young now Arizona's pitching coach, what will prevent the Athletics from completely collapsing?
(slicksilksox from at my desk)
The great thing about excellent pitching coaches is that yesterday's excellent pitching coach is tomorrow's sacrificial lamb, not unlike managers. While the fan in me will miss Young, I'm sanguine as to the chances the A's make a good hire in his place. (Christina Kahrl)
