Ask DRB #19: How much good/bad can a hitting coach do?

Plus: Lazy River’s in Stadiums - good idea, bad idea, or best idea?

MLB: Los Angeles Angels at Tampa Bay Rays Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Is getting rid of the hitting/pitching coach just the cheap fix that ignores the bigger issues with a team? Or perhaps can the message get stale after years of hearing it? Whether we actually know enough to answer either question, we can still have our own hot take to add.

Qs:

  • Would Brad Miller work better in LF or 1B?
  • Is Nick Franklin playing his way into a platoon role in 2017 (though with who is still a mystery)?
  • With a disappointing season, does the buck stop at Kevin Cash? How much blame should a manager get?
  • Stadium talk! What are some of the new and innovative ways the Rays can get people to choose going out to the game vs staying in?
  • The Rays face a similar problem that the movie industry does: making an enjoyable enough experience out, with a good enough product, to get people to get off their couch and see it in person.
  • Is the Trop’s location the biggest problem leading to low attendance, or is there more important factors?
  • How should the Rays address the bullpen next year?
  • What’s the next “shocking” move the Rays will make?
  • What is the issue with Motter to be left off the major league roster?
  • Should the Rays bring back LoMo?
