Mike Berardino relayed discussions with Rob Antony and Ron Gardenhire on Aaron Hicks.
Hicks is a good guy, and he's laid back. He isn't one to show a lot of emotion.
The generally discussion is and has been that he's too laid back and unprepared. Not sure I'm a big fan of calling him out, especially when Antony said,
“There are times when you want him to get a little more aggressive,” Antony said. “I think he plays the game right. I don’t have a problem with the personality. It’s more about the production and the preparation and everything else where we think he has a ways to go. It takes time. They are not finished products when they get here.”
If it's about the production (and it is and should be, then let's not talk about the personality. Hicks isn't a finished product, and he's 24.
This kind of thing should probably stay in the clubhouse... as much as we want to know more and more.
