DC: Quit wasting time making excuses for Coker. If his foot is limiting him, say that and give us honest evaluation. It's hard to understand what you are getting at:
" but you have to wonder if it's affecting accuracy. Any accuracy issues weren't noticeable, however."
Also, the daily comment that you think Comer has best arm, while not saying which throw he's displaying it on... Outs? Quick slants? Deep balls? To who? Describe the play? Please provide basis for your daily recitation that Coker has strongest arm.
According to family, Coker has a broken bone in his foot. He got it doing 4th qt drills. He wears a boot when not practicing. During practice he wears a steel insert to protect the foot. It does not allow him to drive off his foot. They want him to work from the pocket. The head trainer said it would not be healed until after the spring. They expect him to be full speed for August. Nobody is making excuses, especially not Coker. Just the facts.
