Well, now I'm thinking someone told Ortiz to talk up Magadan, because he's singing his praises now.
Today Mags pulled me to the video (room) and he showed some stuff I put into play today, and it made a huge difference. Every time I took a swing I was just looking at him, "Dude, you should have taught me this three months ago." But Mags, man, he's keeping his eyes on all of us. He's done a great job. He's trying to watch and learn how everybody works around here, and that's the best thing you can do as a hitting coach when you first come to a team.I don't care if Flo gets his hitting tips from the hot dog vendors, as long as he keeps hitting. But I find the timing of this a little amusing.
