The Glass Half Full Tavern

COACH! I have had very few problems with MANNY ACTA and his staff this year and I (We) will always question every Manager, Head Coach! I am not sure the flip with hitting coaches has helped to the degree it needed to, and after watching SHELLEY DUNCAN hit yesterday in the 1st inning I am not even sure we have a hitting coach! Here are facts:

* The Tribe loaded the bases with NO ONE OUT in the 1st on 3 singles!

* Carlos Santana WALKED on FOUR pitches to bring a run home!

* Duncan swings at the FIRST PITCH and pops up to 1st base!

He should have NOT SWUNG AT THE FIRST PITCH AFTER FOUR STRAIGHT BALLS TO CARLOS! SIMPLE!

Also, who in the dugout keeps waving Carrera BACK in CF!!!??? If no one is doing this, THEN BRING HIM IN! My gosh, if he could, he would play CF on EAGLE AVENUE! Someone, YES A COACH, also needs to tell him to PLAY THE BALL, DO NOT LET THE BALL PLAY HIM!

One other thought with Tim Belcher and Ubaldo Jimenez…TIM, do NOT give him too much 411. So tough to do during the season, especially when you are in a play off race. SHOW HIM THE GOOD THINGS HE IS DOING, reinforce them, then after the season OFF TO ARIZONA to work on mechanics AND NO HUGE 2012 vacation for Ubaldo this year! WORK, WORK, WORK!

Whew…earn your pay COACHING STAFF!
