I think a manager can make a team better, but won't make them worse. Ozzie's coaching changed 0% from '05 till he left. In professional sports (and in most cases in college) it's about talent. You either perform or you don't.

The Sox didn't make the moves in the off-season to make this team any better. In which case made it worse. For as beat up as our pitching staff is, they are still as solid as ever. Credit Coop for that.

It's a long season, they can turn it around. However we have a track record of dumping the players if we are sucking.
