Baylor Born Again

Classical too intelligent to be radical,
Masterful, never irrelevant, mathematical...

The Local Nine finally got one thing right this offseason when they brought in Don Baylor to serve as Soul Patch Hurdle's hitting coach. Don't get it twisted, this isn't some Bill Synder back to try recapture the glory years, mainly because Baylor's glory years consisted of a single glory year.

Rather, Baylor is an accomplished hitting coach an proven leader who will undoubtedly bring a more technical approach at the plate to the Rockies hitters. And with Baylor on the bench with Hurdle, the Rockies have the two people who know the intricacies and home turf of Coors Field better than anyone in the baseball realm. Just don't ask him to manage the pitching staff. Lance Painter isn't available to pinch hit.

Best case scenario is that Baylor can keep the Rockies out of the seemingly weeks-long slumps they endured at the plate. The youngsters will be able to hone their clutch hitting, which was sorely lacking in their post-Rocktober season.

Although it's not all cold Coors and warm Tornadoughs in Rockies' Land. One has to wonder what benefit Baylor would've had on a certain MVP candidate who now plies his ware in Oakland? Could the average gone to the upper stratosphere of .360+? More RBIs and better power numbers? While we'll never know the answer, I'm growing my sweet Dante Bichette mullet now to celebrate.

Ugh, that Lance Painter at bat was one of the most painful ABs ever. The Rox played teh Braves tougher that series than the LAD or CLE did in the World Series. We actually couldve won it.

Yeah it was a good series.

I like the move to bring in Baylor and Jim Tracy as bench coach. Although to be honest, I think this reeks of a 'hire your own replacement' type situation for Hurdle.

I just don't see how the Rockies contend this year and even though the Monforts are the 2nd worst owners in baseball they can't possibly extend Clint beyond this season unless they win the division.
