The Cubs fired hitting coach Gerald Perry today and promoted Triple A hitting coach Von Joshua.
"Every day, we have five guys in the lineup who have played in the All
Star Game. For whatever reason, we're just not performing anywhere
close to the level that they all have performed throughout their
careers. Sometimes you have to try something different."
I don't know enough about Gerald Perry's techniques or his batting cage-side manor to be honest, although I would say that it would seem that Lou took it upon himself a lot when guys were really struggling to help their swings. We just recently heard about looking at video with Milton Bradley and their have been half a dozen or so incidents like that of Lou saying that he's now involved.
If Joshua can bring the "get-a-hit-with-runners-in-scoring-position" technique with him from Iowa, then it will be all worth it.
