In one of his notes, Judd Zulgad of ESPN 1500 talks about the new hitting coach situation:

Gardenhire said he does not anticipate any problems with having three men who have served as hitting coaches on the staff.


"I think we're all in it together as a staff," Gardenhire said. "Bruno is the hitting guy and, obviously what he wants will get done. But Joe has been one, Scotty Ullger has been (a hitting coach). We all have to work together here. I don't think there will be anyone stepping on anyone's toes. Everything will go through Bruno. Obviously, he's the hitting guy but Joe has worked with all of these guys. If Bruno is tied up with one guy, Vavra can help out. I think we all are going to work together pretty good."


I like that it all goes through Bruno in theory. I do worry a little bit about this becoming a distraction. Too many cooks....

Two and a half hitting coaches is more like it.

Haha, pouring over too many details today, TG. That's just not a very likely issue.
