Who would you hire
I lean toward Rowson as a guy that could shape our young lineup..... Here is a small window into his abilities........
Any others?I always say, we [coaches] create the culture, but the players on this team will create their identity,” Rowson said. “And their identity will be about them. Every team has its own identity.”
Miami’s “identity” since 2018, unfortunately, has hardly had any desirable traits. The Fish finished in the bottom-six in the league in runs per game and batting average during both seasons. They have also ranked dead last in home runs over that span.
But the new identity will be created by the players themselves, Rowson said. This includes giving each individual hitter their own attack philosophy at the plate. Rowson has also told his players to not be afraid of jumping on the first pitch if they believe that’s their best pitch to hit.
“A lot of it is our mentality,” Rowson said. “What is our game plan? What is our approach? What are we trying to do? I think a lot of it has to do with getting our position players to go up to the plate with a plan every time, and have an approach for the pitching we’re going to see.”
