After some talk about Bobby V's criticism of Castro's focus last year, the Hobbiton Press has some quotes from Castro about the new hitting coach and whether he'll change his approach.
"I don't have to change," he said. "The walks and those kinds of things, they're coming. I try to be more patient, but right now, the pitchers are throwing strikes. That's all I can do, swing the bat. If the pitcher doesn't throw strikes, I don't swing. A lot of guys are (first-pitch hitters), and the hitting coach, he likes that. He said if you know your pitch, swing, even if it's the first pitch."
