By who? I never heard anyone mock the hiring...As others have said, this is mostly because the teams are winning. I wouldn't say the coaches ever get a vote of confidence though - just that they never get brought up. Farrell got torn apart at the end, and the Cora hiring was widely mocked until the Red Sox kept winning, then that topic mysteriously vanished from the airwaves. Same as the Price topic, though I'm sure losing to the Yankees last night will chum the waters there.
