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,

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.

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.
