The coach doesn't have a clue? Based on what? Sounds like a lot of assumptions are being made there Jeff.
Triano likely has given Amir every indication where he would like him to be positioned and how to use his body. But knowing and doing are very different things. I disagree with Chisholm as far as thinking Amir has leveled off. He definitely needs to improve on defense to take that next step and be a legit starter, but at the same time I'd say that he has made improvements over last season, and as this season has progressed. He's one of those guys that can make use of the rest of this season to really raise his game, and Chisholm is right in pinpointing the areas that need to improve for that to happen - I just think a little nod to some progress is in order.
