This team needs a real hitting coach and a functional pitching coach

The more I see this team struggle offensively, the more I wonder why Chris Chambliss is no longer the hitting coach. The more I see  Aaron Harang struggle, the more I wonder why Dick Polehead is still the pitching coach. I am reasonably convinced that strong direction from either areas of coaching could engender positive results from the offense and pitching. Yet the present coaching staff seems at best inert. With, of course, the exception of the little gnome guy, Chris Squires who has won both of his games when called upon to run the team. I agree with Kent Murker - This team has all the components to win. Once again I turn to the manager and his coaching staff and ask - what have they done over the course of the season to improve this team's individual performance? The Answer - not much. This series with the Cubs is vitally important. Yet again the Team plays like they're on downers - Quaalude's -  Soapers - Heroin....maybe even BEER! I I totally believe that at least 9 - 12 games this season have been lost by the manager and his staff. And - Where is the Veteran  leadership ?...cause it sure isn't coming from Dusty Baker and crew. I just hate to see this season lost to incompetence and 'right way' bullshit. AAARRRGGGHHHH
