Remember that Gary Ward was the "savior" to our hitting problems last year when we got rid of Joshua. Isn't it funny how this cycle keeps on repeating itself???????????? Look for Cooper to get fired later on in the year when the pitching staff comes unglued. Remember last year?? Todd Ritchie was solid early, and was victim to no support. Then, his wheels fall off. The team gets mired in a mediocre month, and Contreras was gone. Same old story. Dodging the necessary bullet. Pathetic.

Hate to burst your bubble,but the Sox were subject to almost THREE years of Nardi's incompetence before he was ousted.Nardi was and always will be a horrible pitching coach,there is a reason he is still collecting a paycheck from the Sox and is not allowed anywhere near their pitchers.

The Sox are lucky Don Cooper agreed to keep the job as pitching coach at the MLB level.

i don't know. ward jumpstared our offense in '01 and helped us to score the third most runs in baseball last season. he was worthwhile for a good amount of time but he grew ineffective. when we brought ward in we needed a more in your face coach because the players wouldn't listen to von. what eventually happened was we ended up with a lot of new players and once the players were actually hitting they grew tired of ward babying them. what i'm trying to say is that its not that ward is necessarily a bad coach but that he is decent one that happens to be a terrible fit for this team right now. simply the fact that we're bringing someone new in will help as long as they're not grossly incompetent.
