Always thought the organization should have took advantage of Baines' hitting knowledge. A guy that was so good in the clutch late in the game obviously has a lot to share.
Thigpen should be able to put his experience to good use, too.
Not sure about Boston. Nothing against the guy, but I agree that it would be nice to have a former base stealer at first. We had the perfect guy in Raines, but Guillen chased him away.
As far as our coaching going into 2013, I'm most concerned about how our in-game pitching decisions are handled. They got worse as the 2012 season progressed.
