Fire Eduardo Perez

Woke up this morning to find out that Hanley hit a GW HR last night. Here's the first sentence in the ESPN recap of the game:

 

"Hanley Ramirez's daily chats with hitting instructor Manny Mota are already paying big dividends for the Dodgers."

And this has been the main problem for the Marlins bats this year. The batting coach. As I've been saying since early June, when one or two of your hitters are slumping, that's on them. But when the whole team is slumping, that's on your batting coach.

 

Fire Eduardo NOW. Before we trade more hitters who are underperfoming because Eduardo is inept.

Not saying a change at this point wouldn't be beneficil but I saw a quote from one of the local beat writers in response to Hanley hitting so well at a new team.

 

They basically said that if Hanley couldn't correct the problems when you have Andre Dawson, tony Perez and others helping the team, he didn think it was an instructional problem with Hanley.

 

Cant say I disagree.

No one is hitting when they need to. If Hanley continues his tear, I don't care if it has nothing to do with Eduardo Perez, you fire Perez for the sake of having to blame someone. It's the American way.

 

Sure it might not be his fault, but its not like were hitting and players are praising how they have improved their game so much under his tutelage.

yeeeeah maybe the FO shouldn't have someone who's never been a hitting coach, and in fact has only managed in the Puerto Rico Baseball League, to be the hitting coach in the first place. he needs to go.

I'm not blaming Hanley not performing on him at all. Hanley's a head case. but Perez has no business being the hitting coach.

To this day I still have no idea why we ever got rid of Jim Presley. Look at all the players he helped develop. Cabrera, Hanley, Uggla, Jacobs, Cantu, Baker, Ross, Cogs (when he was rookie of year), Gaby (when he was decent)..... Lack of hitting was not the problem during those years.

and when he was here we were asking for him to be fired because they players struck out way to much.

 

it has nothing to do with the hitting coach. its the type of players we have.

I was going to say the same about everyone wanting Presley fired.

The thing I find most surprising about the Marlins this season (even more than Bell suddenly not being able to close, & the Marlins offense being so inept with RISP) is the fact that the hitting coach (Eduardo Perez) has not been fired.

 

I just don't get it. The offense has so much talent and they've performed so poorly. The Angels fired their hitting coach early in the season after their poor start-and their hitting coach had a much closer tie to the organization. Why the heck don't the Marlins get a new hitting coach? How much longer does the offense have to suck for the FO to realize they need a new hitting coach? I really don't get it. It's a wonderment to me.

I beg to differ... the type of players we have? They are performing bad because of the type of players they are? Hasty Generalization.

For it what its worth Lenny Harris has been working for the Marlins with the GCL team, he worked a year for the Nats on the ML level, he didn't seem to make too big an impact, but that might be about the same as what they have now.

 

Last I heard, Lenny's interested in becoming a professional first-pitch thrower.

All proceeds go to helping Sondra Johnstone.

i can see Hanley's first day with LA...."see Hanley, you have to make contact with the ball and square up the barrel of the bat with the ball.....not just try to swing hard and look pretty while doing so"

 

"Oh but Eduardo said..."

 

"No no, you're doing it all wrong..HIT THE BALL"

 

"Well I suppose I can try that but it goes against what I've been taught..."

Can't say I disagree with this. Hanley was traded because he was a head case here. Trading him should have been a wake up call to him saying the game wasn't all about him. At the same time, I can't say Perez should stay. I want someone that has some experience and success in that position. I can see just one reason he was hired in the first place.

 

BUT......If Hanley returns to near previous form he will become the boards new Miggy. It seems as if some are already forgetting why he is gone and will just start saying it is because this FO is so inept.
