So much time has passed since Mickey "I'm Just the Patsy" Brantley was shown the far far end of the plank that we had almost forgotten about new Jays hitting coach Gary Denbo. Globe Junior reminds us of the new hire, who apparently isn't averse to taking balls in the face. (Hey-o!)
Denbo has his work cut out for him, what with the team's disappointing performance at the plate in 2007. Still, Denbo seems as though he may be set up for success, what with the team returning to mostly good health. And while we at the front of the mob chasing Brantley out of town, we kinda feel sorry for him. If Denbo comes out and has success with a team that is deeper and healthier, people (like us) will probably assume that it is because he is a genius, and Brantley was a dope.
