Towles don't need no stinking hitting coach

Lexington Herald-Leader's Mark Maloney profiled the seven former Legends currently with the Astros, with good quotes from Bogusevic and Norris. But the most interesting one was from J.R. Towles, on his month-long success in 2011, and what changed:

"I figured it out on my own. Someone needed a picture for a charity event, so I was digging through some pictures at my house and there was a picture from '07. I was like, 'man, my hands look lower there.' So I went and looked at some film and some more pictures from when I was going well in '07 and the beginning of '08, and my hands were lower then than they were in 2009 and 2010."
