Sox Fire Strength Coaches

In a move that should not surprise anyone, the Red Sox fired two coaches on their athletic training staff. Considering the widely held belief that lack of conditioning had a lot to do with BlackSeptemberGate, this is probably a good move (even if only symbolic).

A bigger issue is the woeful track record of the medical staff advising the team over the last three years. From Ellsbury's ribs to Buchholz's back to Pedroia's foot to Youkilis' whatever, it's been one debacle after another. We would recommend the firing of Doctors Howard, Fine & Howard.
