During last night's game, Hawk made a point of complementing Joey Cora on the job he's done as third base coach. He also called out the media again for being critical of Sox players and coaches. He specifically said that he'd like to find out who it was who wrote an article about Cora not being qualified to be a third base coach. The person in question said that Joey "would embarrass himself." Does anyone know who Hawk was talking about?

There was a column on espn.com a while back that said Cora was the worst thrid base coach in the league and would get many Sox runners thrown out at the plate. It was Neyer or Stark I think, not Gammons.

It was probably Stark. He never has anything positive to write about the Sox. Neyer, on the other hand, has written some nice pieces about Frank Thomas and other Sox players.

Yeah, we've all seen how much worse he is than Wendell Kim, haven't we?

Cora is doing a superb job. Wosrt in the AL? He might be the best. Anyway, I was one who thought Bruce Kimm did a pretty job for our club last year, but Cora has been as good as they get for our club thus far. Love that we have him.:bandance:

I can't stand Philly Stark. There's no news worth reporting if it's not about the Phillies.
