  1. hey do you agree with what ‘some people say’ that Larry Rothchild is a bad pitching coach? and that’s why Hughes is shining now?

    • I don’t know. I feel like there are a bunch of other factors at work here, such as playing in a friendlier stadium dimension-wise. And if Rothschild is a bad pitching coach, one would think it would affect far more than just a few guys…. some players just don’t seem to fit in NYC… and Hughes was one.
