I think Charlie Hough has done an excellent job working with the Mets pitchers to develop their abilities. The Mets defense has performed all season, especially when the offense wasn't able to bring in runs. I think he is an inspirational, caring and effective pitching coach and should stay with the Mets ballclub as long as he so desires!

Who's idea was it to hire a knuckle-baller to be the pitching coach? It was a mistake to hire this fool over Orel in the offseason, and having only one starter end the season with a winning record is proof that Charlie Hough needs to go.

hey, I dont understand the rationale behind hiring a knuckle ball pitcher either, but I think it's a pretty safe bet that the reason why only one met pitcher finished above .500 is because the offense SUCKED. dead last in pretty much every offensive category. if you look at the starters' ERAs, most could have easily won 15 games on better offensive teams.

The knuckleballer pitched forever. He looked positively ancient towards the end of his playing days (baseball can do that to you). His biggest claim to fame, sadly, was giving up one of Reggie Jackson's three homers in the final game of the 1977 World Series. With the Mets, he had the honor of replacing Dave Wallace as the pitching coach of Leiter, Franco, et al. Two losing seasons later, he was gone with Bobby V. and most of the others. In retrospect, it's not too hard to see why.
