Question the coaching staff

New, comments

Now that the statute of limitations has run out on the championship of 2004, it's time to start questioning the coaching staff! That's right, people, our second-favorite national pastime.

Now, I'm not saying it's time to launch Firefrancona.com or anything. I'm just saying I can no longer sit idly by and casually forgive the faux pas. (Plural.) So lets start a list, shall we?

I'll go first. These are the things I can remember off the top of my head (and that's why it's important to write these things down):

Leaving pitchers in too long - Clement gets drilled in the ankle; Terry sticks with him until the game is out of reach. Has done the same thing with Wakefield.

Making me wish Wendell Kim was our third base coach - For everything from Manny running through stop signs to keeping Willy Mo at third on a pass ball that rolled a half-mile to the backstop.

I could go on, but wanted to save some for you ...
