I guess Mickey's infectious optimism is no longer required.

The Angels announced that Mickey Hatcher has been removed from his job as the team's hitting coach. Hatcher will be replaced by Jim Eppard, who had been the hitting coach at Triple-A Salt Lake City. This was Hatcher's 13th year as the Angels' hitting coach, and his firing is surely a response to the club's overall lack of offense this season, particularly from Albert Pujols. (Ironically, Pujols hit three singles in today's 4-0 win over the A's.) Mike DiGiovanna of the L.A. Times thinks this move came from owner Arte Moreno and is another sign that GM Jerry Dipoto is in charge of the team, not Mike Scioscia

Hopefully Jim Eppard has a time machine, because that's the only way the Angels are getting a fair return on Pujols' contract.

Horrible contract. I wasn't a fan of Hatcher's but Pujol's definitely threw him under the bus.
