Fire Walk.

This team sucks.

They can't hit.

Fire Guillen.

Cut Thome.

Swisher was a waste of 2 future HOFers

Dye is washed up.

OC was a terrible move

Guillen and Williams are stupid for not sending Alexei to the minors first.

BA needs more ABs.

No need for the word "have" here. One month over the last two seasons is still not that good. If this keeps up I'll change my mind, but right now I'd still fire him.

I admire your persistance.

I'd propose to you that it was not Walker's fault they were struggling any more than it is to his credit that they tore up June. If you take 2007 out of the picture as a complete anomoly, Walker's teams have hit ok over the course of his time here. Not great - but OK.

The honus to hit is still on the hitters. I'd fire the guys who aren't hitting.

So what exactly is it that Walker does anyway? Apparently he has no effect on how this team hits, and for that reason I would fire him because the man is getting paid to do nothing.

In fairness, what team couldn't use a Honus in its lineup? :redneck

I don't see what he does every day - but all reports I have read indicate that he works with all these guys, every day, and is in the park early working BP with them. If he wasn't doing what was expected of him, he'd have been relieved of his duties a long time ago.

Ah yes - fallacious logic...

Take an untrue premise, draw an untrue interpretation, and then use that to make a silly conclusion...

What's the job of a major league hitting coach? Does Dave Magadan make Manny Ramirez a great hitter? Does Gerald Perry make Derek Lee a great hitter? Nope Those guys work with their hitters, provide them input and feedback, and give them the tools. These are the same things that, by all reports, Walk does with our hitters.

And, if you look at the numbers, despite the handwringing, this is a pretty good offensive baseball team in many ways.

Who is this hitting coach you'd replace Walker with tomorrow who would make this a better hitting club? And what exactly would he do different than Walker?

A win is a win...it means no more or less that it was the Cubs or any other NL team.
