Playing HBD for the first time and curious about coaching: Is it always better to have better coaches at higher levels?
Example: My Rookie league pitching coach has pitching ability of 63 and my lo-A coach has pitching ability of 43. Should I let my lo-A coach go, promote my rookie league coach by a level and hire a new rookie coach?
Seems obvious, but...

Go with the obvious!

You may have already done this but to get a sense of appropriate ratings for each level, I'd suggest looking at the average of coaches at each level in previous seasons. Others might offer that here, but you'll get a sense of what's appropriate (or better) for your world.

What about his patience and discipline? Loyalty?

What kind of prospects do you have at each level? Where do you expect them to be next season?

How are you valuing his ABILITY?

Yeah I don't think the fact that the coach can throw strikes will help much.

By pitching ability I meant pitching IQ. Thanks for the help!
