Keith Askins deserves to win Coach of the Year (Decade?) for the job he’s done with Joel Anthony. — Luke.

Say what you want about where Joel stands, but he would not even be this far along without the patience shown and work put in by Keith, who deserves the notice and credit. The fact that he has gotten Joel to catch the ball could leave him with a potential job moonlighting as a fielding coach during the lockout.
