Gary Tuck Back As Red Sox Bullpen Coach

US Presswire
After much speculation to the contrary, Gary Tuck will be returning for his seventh season as Boston's bullpen coach. Tuck is extremely popular with pitchers, and has had a good relationship in the past with John Farrell during his pitching coach days with the Red Sox. This is a smart re-hire and should lead to stability for a critical element of the team. On the flip side, Farrell is suggesting that the team will hire two hitting coaches, which we still think is a dumb concept—no matter how popular it's becoming in baseball.
