Having John Wasdin teach you about pitching, is probably like having a homeless man look over your portfolio.

Here's how you throw a three-run homer.

Maybe he was brought in to help kids learn to deal with failure.

For what it's worth, John Farrell's career ERA+ is 92, and Wasdin's is 93. Moreover, they have virtually the same career WHIP and H/9. Wasdin had better BB/9 and SO/BB. To be fair, though, Farrell walked and struck out more people altogether, and Wasdin had the pesky HR problem.

Perhaps worse pitchers/players know what they lack and can communicate it. I'm interested to see how Wasdin progresses.

John Wasdin wasn't that bad. If he could just avoid giving up extra base hits to the first three guys he faced he'd have been awesome.

Actually, the Lake Monsters changed affiliation this off season. They are now part of the A's organization.

Just a hunch but I'm betting the Lake Monster pitching staff will have a spike in whiplash-type neck injuries this season under Way Back's tutelage.

In related news, the Vermont Lake Monsters moved their fences back 100 feet in Center, 90 feet in left and right field.

The international implications of this move are already rippling through Ottawa and Washington DC. The Canadian government is rushing reinforcements to the border based on credible intelligence that small, high velocity bombs will soon be thrust over the border in the Burlington, VT region.

Living in Burlington I can assure you the were your descriptions of the fences true, RC to RF would be in New Hampshire and LF over the border in Quebec. Small state.
