A rumor on Soxtalk.com has Tim Raines as the possible new first base coach. If true, it would be a very good move IMO. Although I don't have a problem with Raffy.

If that's the case I think that next year our coaching staff would be able to take the team on the field 5 games out of 7.

I thought he was already a coach in the Expos' minor league system. :?: I remember the article in the Southtown saying that the Sox were going to get rid of Santana. Can we put Baines at first and get a real bench coach please?

It's true, just hasn't been announced yet.

Yep. It's true. Hopefully Tim's grown up a bit. I'm not optimistic though.

I have no problem with Rock coaching--although I have thought for awhile that Lance Johnson would be excellent

I have no problems with Santana....I would be great to see Rock out at first base though.

Santana was getting a few too many years under his belt, I figure.

And him and Tim have quite a lot in common.. a few assult charges.. a DUI, IIRC... and a continual nose problem. :rolleyes: :rolleyes:

Maybe by terminating him while getting him help. However, if it doesn't become an issue, and he performs well as a first base coach, then I don't see a problem. I don't anticipate it being a problem.

Great, so when we going to hire Dotson or Hoyt as our pitching coach? Oh wait, Hoyt and Raines on the same team...not good....Just kidding Lamar.

Either one would be fine by me.

Dotson has been the Sox pitching coach for the Great Falls, Montana rookie league club the past two years.

I don't remember Raines getting into these problems. I did a quick search and ddin't find anything about Raines.

If we forgive Lamar Hoyt and allow him to be an instructor, we should also allow Tim back. If he has overcome the problems you say he has.
