I liked Dave. His techniques were similar to his father's childhood friend, Ted Williams. I enjoyed his style.

I looked up his career stats and he is a career .262 hitter, and he maybe had 7 homers at the most in a season. Where he comes off as a hitting coach is beyond me, just because his dad was friends with Ted Willimas doesn't make him qualified unless he himself was friends with Ted's bat.

You don't have to be a great hitter to be a great hitting coach, just like you don't have to be a great musician to be a great music teacher. Sometimes if you struggle as one you learn so much and experiment with so many techniques that you thrive as the other. "Naturals" often have less to teach since it all comes so easily to them.

That said, Engle seemed like a nice guy, but he just couldn't wake up the Mets' bats. The question is whether anyone could have. Or can. Shea is no bandbox.
