Reds Hire Hitting Coach

Many thanks to HMZ for being on top of this for me. XOXO

The Reds shook things up today when they didn't hire a hitting coach from Wayne Krivsky's previous employers. Instead, they hired someone from Jerry Narron's previous employer.

(That's not fair, of course. You can do Five Degrees of Jerry Narron with everyone in the league. It's just the first thought that popped into my head, and I'm betting I wasn't the only one.)

The Reds have hired a hitting coach in Brook Jacoby. Marc has some ideas from Jacoby on one Adam Dunn:

“I consider 194 of them a little bit of an issue,” said Jacoby. “If he were to put the ball in play a little more, I’m sure it would mean some more RBIs and possibly some more hits. It might be an approach thing with him with two strikes; it might be a mechanical thing. I’ll have to sit down and talk to him and we’ll figure it out. I’d like to think something could be improved there.”

Worth a try, I guess, assuming Dunn's around that long.
