They need to fire their hitting coach.

Dudes like Chris Young, Stephen Drew, Conor Jackson, Mark Reynolds, Justin Upton are too good to be hitting in the low 200's.

A.J. Hinch will take over.


That dude has taken the front office world by storm. He just retired like four years ago.

Even while playing, he was planning his post-playing career. He went so far as to go to the 2003 General Manager's winter meetings to look for future job opportunities and contacts.


Phenomenal.

I care, as a Dbacks fans i think this is kind of unfair...Bo Mel isnt a bad coach at all...they are underachieving and so are a lot of teams.

I hope this work for the team because i want to see them win.

BUT IF THIS DOESNT, the only person to blame is our GM Josh Byrnes. He didnt draft Drew, Jackson, Reynolds and a couple other young guys that are playing rightnow.

he....
-Didnt resign Orlando (how is he doing right now)
-Got rid of Carlos Quinten (How is he doing right now also)
-brought the young kids up early (some say to)
-got rid of Tony Clark then brought him back half way during the season
-signed Eric Byrnes to a 3year 30million contract
-and hasnt put a big bat in the lineup when the desperatly need one.

He has made some iffy moves and our bullpen isnt where it should be....

if this doesnt work out he needs to be gone.
