He saw him chase a breaking ball by two feet, then he throws a fastball away and he hits it off the wall," manager Ron Gardenhire said. "That's just bad selection of pitches and not executing, and that's what cost you a ballgame tonight. Pretty disappointing." doesn't the coaching staff call most of the pitches? what are you going to do about it gardy? how about some real coaching from you and your staff. the rash of errors, bad pitches at key times, no effort to stay out of double plays by hit\runs or bunts. the list could go on. this all falls at one persons doorstep, yours. get interested, the marathon is about half over. getting close to sprint time.
The coaches don't call pitches. Occasionally they call for pitch-outs or other plays. The catcher "suggests" a pitch and the pitcher either accepts or rejects the suggestion. Ultimately, the pitcher decides what to throw, and then has to execute. Many times, the pitchers are over thinking things. They really should rely on their veteran catcher and just make the pitch.
