I see that hitting coach Chris Chambliss has been fired. Guess he’s the fall guy for the drop in offensive performance this year. Do you suppose that having 1/4 of his starting offense traded away for middle relief had anything to do with the offensive decline?
That article also notes that the Reds are on the hunt for a new pitching coach. I’m worried that this means Vern Ruhle is not going to recover to a point where he can perform the duties associated with pitching coach, but I guess that writing is on the wall.
It’ll be interesting to see who the Reds hire to fill these two positions.
