Tim Raines, one of the best hitters and basestealers in recent Sox memory has been hired as first base coach and baserunning instructor. Look for big improvement in base stealing on the 2005 White Sox.

Maybe Rock Jr will be joining him soon? Maybe in a package with Hairston Jr?

I likes...I likes...

Now we need Black Jack as a pitching coach, and my childhood team will be together again!

Also...It's gonna be the battle of the Rocks.

You can't make a silk purse from a sow's ear.

I hope Tim Raines can make a significant contribution to the Sox for 2005. However I'm not convinced he has much of anything to work with at the top (or bottom) of our order.

Just who's going to be doing all this stealing? Big Frank? Paul Konerko? Maybe they can bring back Greg Luzinski! Remember, you can't make chicken soup with chicken you-know-what.

Hey, if nothing else, maybe the young Sox baserunners will gain valuable insight on how to avoid breaking their coke vials by sliding headfirst...

Guys who could use some instruction in basestealing:
Harris, Valdez, Rowand, Borchard, CLee, Uribe, Crede(?)

Guys who shouldn't be running:
Konerko, Thomas, either catcher, Everret

I like "The Rock" as much as anyone and feel he is a positive addition.
However,
Isn't base running/stealing a technique that should have already been learned in the minor leagues?

I think it used to be, and should be, but few organizations seem to instruct like they previously did.

Coaches are there to make sure those skills are learned correctly. Being a good minor league hitter or pitcher doesn't mean your skills are good enough to be good in the majors, and the same goes for basestealing, bunting, defense, etc.

I believe he's now the Sox' roving minor league infield instructor.
