I thought he hired Brocail pretty late in the offseason when no one else was available. I always got the impression Elias thought Brocail was the best he could do on short notice. I'm kind of surprised he lasted more than a year to begin with, but maybe someone Elias really wanted became available, or like was said earlier in the thread with minor league contraction there will be a ton of candidates
Fredi Gonzalez and Tim Cossins both served as bench coaches in 2020. Gonzalez besides being a former manager was Third Base Coach for the Marlins from 2016 through 2019. My guess is he takes over Flores join at 3rd base.
That would cut the number of coaches on Hyde's staff from 8 to 7.
Overall: .273/.312/.481, 12 HR and 35 RBI in 231 PA
Vs. O’s: .333/.356/.881, 7 HR and 18 RBI in 45 PA.
Vs. other teams: .259/.301/.385, 5 HR and 17 RBI in 186 PA.
Overall: .232/.280/.457, 31 HR, 80 RBI in 628 PA
Vs. O’s: .321/.368/.830, 7 HR, 15 RBI in 57 PA
Vs. Other teams: .223/.271/.420, 24 HR and 65 RBI in 571 PA.
This guy is a sub-.700 OPS hitter when he’s not playing us, and a 1.200+ OPS hitter when facing the O’s. That’s nuts!
Anyway, glad to see the Blue Jays quickly bounced from the playoffs.

Ooof. Garrett Olson and Hayden Penn. That was a trip down memory lane, for sure. And while it's been awhile since I've heard those names, it still doesn't seem that long ago. Hayden Penn also lives on in my mind because there was a poster here who said that Hayden Penn could never be good cause of his name, which was hilarious and that take on prospects became a thing around here for a little bit.
