After an anemic hitting season like 2011 most clubs would not hesitate to can their hitting coach. Hell, most would have canned him in mid-season. I don't know if Hatcher has negatives of Scioscia doing something or not, but just what glue does he have to keep his job as long as he has. Good hitters come to the Angels and they die. Bad hitters get worse. Young hitters don't develop or they are flash in the pans. Hatcher and Mathis [who will probably be Hatcher's ultimate successor] --- how do they keep their jobs??? Scioscia cannot be so blind as to think that Hatcher makes a quality contribution to the team.
