    Feature on Gary Lucas, Kernels pitching coach

    Jim Ecker of MetroSportsReport.com posted a feature on Kernels pitching coach Gary Lucas. Good insight in to Lucas and how the players and manager Jake Mauer feel about him.

    As a former pitcher, I loved this quote because it exemplifies the positive reinforcement I see Luke giving guys all the time.

    "If I'm in their shoes, I don't want to hear about what I just did wrong, I want to hear about how I'm going to get myself out of this jam," he said. "These young kids, they're rattled. So if they can get a positive thought and it carries them, maybe that's the ticket."

    Here's the link to the article.
