Someone posted a thread in the past week on Greg Walker and Sox hitting coaches. I found this quote from mark Buehrle to Mark Gonzales of the Tribune interesting:

"I think from everyone's standpoint, everyone gets along well, pitchers like the hitting coach and the hitters like Coop (pitching coach Don Cooper).

"I won't mention any names, but during my first years here there was a hitting coach who couldn't stand pitchers and he was going off on us.

"We didn't really like him, either."

I assume he's talking about Ward?

I had to pick between Ward and Von Joshua, I'd say it was Ward.

Probably Ward since Von Joshua came over with Nardi Contreras and they had worked together before so I doubt they didn't get along.
