    I don't really think Jeff is awesome... he's still pretty averse to any new analytics. I mean, last year he said that homeruns are rally killers and sometimes it'd be better not to hit HRs. That's next level stupidity.

    However, he's a positive and energetic guy and he has fun stories so I much prefer him to Joe. Plus, I think he'll be less curmudgeonly when not paired up with Crabby Joe.

    i believe so.

    I think Kapler mismanaged the pitching staff, whereas the pitching coach worked with some pretty bad pitchers. Not mad at this move. He has also worked with some bad staffs in the past. We will see how it goes.

    Unlikely. Not worth the cost. I would rather blow the bank for Kluber or a comparable starter.

    He's also had a 2.47 ERA since he left Atlanta.
