    Dave Hansen won't return as hitting coach

    Dodgers announced today that Dave Hansen won't be retained as hitting coach, but has been offered a position with the team. Sorry, no link.

    I hope the Dodgers get real picky on who they choose to be their next hitting coach.

    If I were to lay odds, I would say Mickey Hatcher is a very very safe bet. He got to know alot of the Dodgers the last couple of months, plus the Dodgers are notorious when it comes to hiring from within, or as they say "keeping it in the family."

    idk about hatcher.

    he was fired from the angels and he had the exact same job so i dont see how it would be any different here.

    the Angels hit much, much better after Hatcher was fired. I don't want him either.

    Is Juan Castro retired yet?? I have a feeling he would make a great hitting coach.

    I have better than Castro. Does anyone remember Eugenio Velez ? Yes, he was a Dodger and I think ended with an all time record 2 years ago. Hired as a utility and a pinch hitter, he finished the season 0 for 37 ! First time in 27 years I notice a player with more than 25 ABs and a .000 avg !

    More seriously, I would like someone who played for the Dodgers, even if not a HOF. What about a man like Brett Butler, or Jeff Kent, or Shawn Green or even Mike Piazza (if steroids made him hit 40 HRs, you must know a few things to hit .362 no ?) The 3 names above all know 2 or 3 things too. Are they available ? Do they want to re-enter the baseball business ?
    10-4 record at Dodger stadium !
    1-0 road record

    Look how good the Cardinals have been hitting with Mark Mcgwire, Why did Hansen get hired in the first place? He wasnt even a good hitter when he played...

    i have no idea. i just hope we get someone that will teach our players to be patient.

    there was a lot of first pitch swinging that screamed impatient hitting.

    bobby abreu comes to mind but he believes he can play 3 more years -__-

    I would like to see Eric Karros or Mike Piazza... But I doubt that happens. I keep hearing Rudy Jaramillo's name out there a lot online.

    I felt the issues included way too much taking pitches to smash. A lot of watching belt high fastballs down the middle for free strikes. I feel there wasn't enough Advanced scouting or aggressiveness
