This is the kind of story that gets you pumped up

Or it's the kind of story that gets you pissed that there's still four inches of snow on the ground. Regardless, Spring Training is just around the corner when you read McTaggart's story on new hitting coach Gary Barnett.

On Brett Wallace:
We had a real good talk, and I'm really pleased with what we talked about from a mechanical approach and his mindset. I love the fact this guy has a track record and knows what he's doing at the plate."

On Jason Castro:
"We want him to try to finish off swings better, because a lot of times he had a tendency to cut some swings off and [the bat] kind of gets in and out of the zone in a hurry."
