Would You Say That Maineri Wins Mostly on Talent and Passion Rather Than Coaching Acumen?
This isn't to say that one strength is better than another. Just genuinely curious.

If you or anyone truly thinks a guy who is in the hall of fame and has won a title doesn't set his team up to win because of his coaching IQ and acumen, I feel sorry for you because you're not living in reality.

Any coach who wins had talented players. Coaches with no talent but great "coaching acumen" never win. This is stupid.

Passion? No. This isn't wrestling, you still have to throw strikes and hit 90mph fastballs. Passion doesn't mean shite in baseball.

Talent? Sure, because he brings in great talent.

In-game he may not be an elite coach but he isn't bad.

His best trait by far as a coach is finding the right roles for his players to make the most of what he has.

No doubt. The only manager at the CWS that I think Maineri did better than was FSU's. How Hess wasn't the closer all year is baffling and there are many instances where you see sloppy coaching especially with base running and when to take a pitcher out of the game.

Mainieri is uptight and puts too much pressure on his teams. LSU's played much too tight in the postseason the last several seasons.

As an LSU fan, you can really say this?

That's kind of the point of this thread.

By "wins" what exactly do you mean?

We talking regular season wins?

The getting out coached thing if way over played. Very convenient excuse. Somehow Sully has figured out how to get arms on his campus. PM is a great baseball coach. He has to figure out how to build depth in the bullpen. He has always been able to get frontline starters but the bullpen has been a cause for concern for a while now.

The Dale Brown of baseball may be an overstatement but there are similarities.

And that's not a knock. It just seems like Maineri often gets outclassed in games by other coaches/teams. More often than not, the players come through to overcome questionable decisions.

Les Miles and Dale Brown teams played the same way. If Maineri evaluates and recruits better, more passionate players, then that's a strength. I'm just wondering if that happens to be his game rather than some of these other coaches who seem to be more students of the game.

And what's your opinion on Les Miles?

In-game coaching is the only component of coaching acumen?

He's an emotional coach who's attached to his players. You can see that with his hires, and how he always wants his pitchers to get through a tough situation even though they should be subbed out.

You don't continually make it to the CWS without being a top notch coCh. You don't make it there on talent, alone. And you don't make it there by just being a top-notch coach. It takes both. Ask Smoke Laval.
