"It's been like light and day"

I'm sure this is a misprint (after all, the author does refer to Jose Altuve as "Jose Albuve"), but this article highlighting Trevor Crowe has a really funny line:

"I was hitting about .180 at the time," Crowe recalls. "He came to me and said, 'You're getting a little too far back when you load, and that's causing you to stride forward. Your head moves and your hands aren't able to work.' Since I made an adjustment, it's been like light and day with my consistency at the plate." 

Light and day. That's not a big difference. But maybe that's the point. The difference between success and failure at the Major League level is as simple as getting a little too far back when you load, causing you to stride forward. Light and Day, my friends. Light and Day.
