  • Baseball coaches have the...

    LEXINGTON - Like most of us, baseball coaches don’t have the ability to change the past.

    Hindsight might be 20/20, but picking a pitching rotation is part of the real world.

    No matter which way a coach goes, he will always wonder if the road not taken had better scenery. Meet up with one die-hard fan a day later and the coach will be told about the wonderment of the option he failed to take.
