Jeff Bagwell Returns

The Astros have announced that Jeff Bagwell is returning to the Astros to serve as a guest instructor during Spring Training this year, after having been away from the game since briefly serving as the Astros hitting coach in 2010. 

Obviously, Jeff Bagwell's presence alone is not going to turn Jon Singleton into a .300/.400/.500 slash line hitter. (Or will it....?) But he clearly mastered hitting during his playing days, and hopefully he can impart some of that wisdom on the Astros current roster. More importantly, Jeff Bagwell and Craig Biggio represent the Astros to most of us, and it's nice to see Bagwell return to the fold. Let's hope this will lead to a bigger role in the future.
