Fire Hensley Meulens?

Sorry to be so snarky but I'm convinced that this guy is no damn good. Here we have situation where the offense stunk last year -- STUNK! -- and is becoming lousy this season because guys are impatient. He's going to be dining off the 2010 World Series title (after Huff and Torres had career years before reverting to crappiness)  for several more years.

Here's what Andrew Baggarly of CSN Bay Area just tweeted --

Giants offense: No homers in six games. 3rd fewest walks in majors... and 3.66 pitches per plate appearance ranks last in baseball.

You need to let this go. There is no evidence whatsoever that a hitting coach can help or hurt, especially with seasoned veterans who believe that what they do is why they're here, or with rookies who don't know how to do what they're supposed to do because they were never taught. The problem is Bochy, Sabean, and the entire "Giants Way" taught and selected for in the minor league system: Hack, with apologies to Larry Kreuger, at slop. Fire Sabean, fire Bochy, hire people who have evolved beyond WWF-level baseball. Eventually you'll have a team with average hitters.

I swear, this team's front office is crazy about denying Bonds. No HRs, no walks.

Sabean is an ass-kissing survivalist bureaucrat, not a baseball man. Bochy is convinced that what he has always known and felt continues to be true despite conclusive evidence to the contrary.

Meulens is nobody and nothing. Remember Carney Lansford. Same problems, same results.

It's systemic, and it's a conscious choice by the people running the system. They are demonstrably wrong. They need to be replaced.

thanks for taking the time to write, Hilarie. Are you actually Hensley Meulens?

You need to have a system in place through out the whole organization.
This starts with our GM working with our scouts telling them what it is were looking for. We DON'T need a left handed power hitter for example, since it's inception, Pac Bell is one of the two hardest parks to hit a homer in right or right center. Because of this, we need to focus from a power perspective for right handed hitters. We need lefties yes but guys who can work a count, hit the ball to the gaps and have a high on base percentage. Start by drafting these guys, teach them from the low minors on up and make sure everyone in the organization is on the same page!
