So, not a huge surprise that the holdover batting coach would be the first to go.
Jaramillo was working his ass off, but anyone with half a brain could have seen that he wasn't long for this world when Hoyer and Epstein came to town. The team's OBP has plummeted under his watch (.332 in 2009, the year before Jaramillo was hired; .320 in 2010; .314 in 2011; .304 this season), and Starlin Castro should not
be hitting .304 with a .317
OBP, Jesus Christ. He made zero progress in un-fucking Geovany Soto, too. Time for him to go, especially since he wasn't going to have his contract extended anyway.
