Pitching Coaches

Besides Dave Duncan of the St. Louis Cardianals what other teams have strong pitching coaches that I may target his players on draft day?

I don't think it is really a good idea to target pitchers based on the their coach.

True, but I wouldn't ignore the influence of a good or bad pitching coach. The Tigers had a pitching coach named Chuck Hernandez in '08 who had a philosphy of having pitchers take something off of pitches, supposedly to help them stay stronger at the end of the year. Verlander had a terrible season that year. Enter Rick Knapp, who preaches throwing strikes and pitching aggressive, and suddenly Verlander becomes a 19-9 pitcher.
I wouldn't draft a pitcher just because of his coach, but it could be a deciding factor between to relative equals.
