Nice article about the new pitching coach in the herald. (http://www.dailyherald.com/sports/sox_story.asp?intID=3748459)

My favorite excerpt though is:

"He's always been a real good communicator,'' Buehrle said. "With Nardi, it seemed like he'd just do things his way. With Coop, you can suggest things to him and he'll go ask (Manuel). Most of the time, they're going to say no, but at least Coop gives you the chance to make suggestions.''

Hmm, now there's a novel approach, go figure, pitchers just might have some ideas on how they should pitch.

:burly
"But I really think grooving a fastball to Giambi is a mistake here."

:nardi
"Who's the coach?!?! If I say throw a BP fastball down the middle you throw it!!"

:burly
"Well, all right.....<mutter>***</mutter>"

<CRACK!!!>

:nardi
"Dammit, throw strikes, just throw strikes!!"

It almost got to be funny watching a pitch after nardi left the mound. You know that's exactly what he was saying. "Throw strike! throw strikes! "

And the batter just sat there waiting. "Ok, I'm ready for the fastball right over the plate" And we know ther rest.

Yeah, its no accident that we had such a thing as the Nardi Jinx. When this ass showed up you just knew there was going to be a hit or 3 to follow.

The cops didn't disagree that we were shooting nardi with cap guns everytime we saw him during broadcasts. lol Well, as soon as they found out they were not real guns. damn suburbanite neighbors! They shouls have lived in the city or Cicero . They'd definatly know the difference. :D:
