I understand that making inflammatory comments is part & parcel for a best-selling author seeking publicity.
We don't have the full context of the exchange, but I partially blame the play-by-play announcer. The questions to ask Dick that would be informative would be:
It's at the point where I'd be overjoyed if he needed Tommy John, because at least that means he didn't get Blass-ed / Willis-ed.
I'm surprised that Hughson didn't mention what he said about David Cooper! Jamie Campbell asked him what his best role would be, given that although he's a good line drive hitter, he doesn't have much homerun power, is a poor defender and an even worse baserunner. Hayhurst just said "Japan?".
He's probably not wrong. You can make a hell of a lot of money in Japan with that skill set, if you catch a few breaks.
I'm glad Hayhurst has gotten this gig, but I would have loved reading the book he would have written if he had not abandoned the season in Italy.
What is he doing wrong? What part of his mechanics are out of control?
Have you seen this close-up before? What happened and did the pitcher recover?
Did you ever face a similar situation and how did you try to recover? (which could lead to the comment "no, I couldn't solve it and that's why I am sitting next to you today")
Who helped you? What was the best advice that you received?
Seconded, and my disappointment isn't just about the potential book. I don't know all the particulars, but from what I read, he hung that team out to dry.
You know, this Jays season has been a total bust, but it is nice to see Rogers employing some employees like Ashby, Zaun and Hayhurst who have no qualms in being critical, especially when the company is in a position to stymy the message with its hold of both the team and the country's major media providers. Frankly it's refreshing.
Those are good questions, Bob, and it makes me curious how you would answer those questions.
I hadn't heard that, but what I read was only from The Garfoose blog and from HardballTalk posts largely quoting him. Can you shed any more light?
