A knee jerk post.  Can you explain what Thames did to turn them into a less than mediocre ofensive team after several years of being one of the top offensive teams prior to 2021?  of course you cannot because we fans never get to see what Thames and the other hitting coach are doing.


Unlike Nevin whose blunders were right there during games for eveyrone to see we never see Thames' work.   After 3 years we have no idea if the reason the Yankees grounded into so many DPs is because Thames suddenly changed everyone's apporach. 


I'm not saying Thames shouldn't have been fierd.  Maybe it simply is time for a nwe voice because the players aren't lsitening to what he is trying to teach.  But if he is to blamer for 2021'a iodfffensive malaise, he ought to get a lot of credit for how well they hit in previous years.




For as long as I've been here Jonah's answer to every issue is to fire someone. 




Isnt that the way it works in most businesses ... if you underperform they release you?

Situational hitting isn't on Thames, I think it is good to bring in a brand new coaching staff to shake things up a bit.  




Situational hitting is 100% on Thames and the Yankees' hitting philosophy which he either led or bought into.  The Yankees' philosophy doesn't tend toward good situational hitting and they've turned the lineup into launch angle robots.  



Execution is on the players, not the coach.




Then why have a hitting coach at all, dear?

You wouldn't understand, you could never hit.

I have hit. NCAA baseball, dear.

Let me ask this: why do other hitting coaches improve their hitters while ours couldn't? I'm sorry, no. The GIDPs were an epidemic on the Yankees and Thames had nothing to do to help them? Seriously?

As much as Thames is working with hitters on mechanical tweaks, he admitted that the mental aspect of the game is also part of the battle. “I told the guys the other day, some days it looks like they’re not having fun,” Thames said. “But they gotta go have fun and let this game slow down a little bit and get back to where we need to be.”

Exactly why the hell would they pay a hitting coach a 6 figure salary to have 0 accountabilty.

Why is Yankees’ offense so bad? Don’t blame analytics, hitting coach Marcus Thames says


www.nj.com/yankees/2021/06/why-is-yankee...


Thames says that he knows what isn’t the problem. He says blame the hitters and the hitting coaches (which include assistant P.J. Pilittere), but not the Yankees’ analytics staff, which pushes for walks and homers a lot more than old-school tactics.



hahahaha


Yeah, Thames wasn't hired to be a mouthpiece for Cashman. Sure.
