This isn't a stupid question.
Most of us believe that the hitters like Lindor and Jose, developed between natural progression and having influences like Brantley and EE around them. Not sure who believes Van Burkleo was a major cause of any of it. Does anyone else @BimboColesHair @AZ_ @Derek really have anything supportive to say for Burkleo since you guys seem to know a little more than I do about him in some ways.

I just love using coaches as scapegoats, and literally this entire team this year on the offensive end besides Lindor (who's an MVP talent on any team in baseball), Santana, Perez, and I guess we can officially say Mercado now too are underperforming.

Bauers, Ramirez, Kipnis, Martin, Plawecki, and Allen are all below where we need them to be, especially the first three guys I listed.

Not sure how much the hitting coach actually does to be perfectly honest, but I'm gonna blame him anyways because it's the easy way out.

There's security all over the Columbus area always hiring that pays at least $14-$15 an hour. I'm sure those guys could bail and get a job for around that in Cleveland/Detroit/wherever Gilbert is if they want to.

So... I'm sure the rate these guys get paid at is set by their company--not by Gilbert. I'm sure Gilbert contracted a company, who provides protection--and that company pays the employees.

Why is it called the World Series, when it’s only North American teams?
