Why did the Sox get rid of one of the best hitting coaches in baseball? No one is calling Theo or the Sox FO for this. Seriosly, the sox hitters were awesome when he was the HC. Magadan sucks. Magadan was FIRED from the Padres, one of the worst hitting teams. and so what does THeo do? He hires him to be the HC of one of baseball's best franchises. Also, Dave Wallace was good too, wasn't he? someone please fill me in on what happened here.
