With the news on ESPN http://espn.go.com/l...-mickey-hatcher about the firing of there hitting couch for the angels. I wonder if TR will follow with the firing of Anderson and Vavra. Anderson just destroys any confident the starters have and tries to change them way to much. Every single pitcher just looks terrible after there first year. I just really want him gone before he destroys Diamond and Walters. Also with the 2nd year in a row of making our hitters look like idiots at the plate i would hope Vavra goes at the same time. So our players can play like they did before they got to the majors. Everyone looks great until those two idiots get a hold of our players it seems. I am ranting a bit but i am just super frusterated right now.

So TL DR with the angels firing there hitting coach do you think TR will follow and get rid of Anderson and Vavra? Maybe it will scare Gardy a bit to start thinking more clearly.

Vavra's been hobbling our hitters since 2006, when he took over as hitting coach. IMO, and I'm begging Seth or one of the mods who can quickly run some stats or bring more info in than I have time for, since then we've been very lucky to get by on natural talent, while our hitters received sub-par batting instruction that didn't emphasize their strengths at all.

Think about it. Hatcher gets fired for his team being 12th in the league in runs scored. By that logic Vavra should probably be fired, imprisoned, and whipped.

Don't you remember all those division titles Gardy won and how he got destroyed in the playoffs? He should have been fired before it got to this point.

In the NFL you can have one of the best records and fall flat on your face in the playoffs you are a goner. Go away Gardy and take all your friends/coaches with you.
