Berardino on Sano

Positive article about hard work with new hitting coach. Why is it not getting as much attention as every cliche article that criticizes him?

I missed this. Will he cut down on his strikeouts?

We want to encourage blog discussion too. Here's the article I'm assuming DA is referring to:

I just don't buy this crap. I have never seen a person with poor work ethic become a "model" for work ethic months later.  Please keep your BS in the clubhouse. I already think very little of this team, false statements only make it worse.

Although I disagree and think that some people learn the importance of working harder and taking better care of themselves, you are entitled to your opinion, but answer me this: why is it more believable when an anonymous member of the front office insinuates complaints about Sano than when his coaches say positive things about him on the record?

I understand the skepticism after the last few years. I am willing to give the new regime some time to sort through things... Recent roster decisions included.  Most of us noticed the way the Twins personnel seemed to feed stories to the media to chastise players into "working harder", hopefully this FO has a more direct/healthy approach to dealing with it's players.

Want to bring this one back. Sano's looking quite good at bat and in the field. Would people like to reconsider the volume of negative comments about Sano this winter and perhaps acknowledge that he may be turning the corner, perhaps through hard work with the assistance of a positive new coach?
