Thank you, Pearl.

Let's talk to Coach Yeager.

-----------

Coach, it's a pleasure to finally meet you. I look forward to the two of us bringing a title to Austin this season. But to achieve that goal, we need our roster sorted out.

My initial thoughts are that we are good with the pitching we have, but need to find some better bats. What positions do you see as the biggest need for an upgrade?

While we have heck of pitching staff, we are pretty lackluster on offense which could cost us. We could honestly upgrade everywhere outside of Ricky.

What style do you like to play? Get on base and run? Hit the long ball?

I favor a pretty conventional playing style. Don't take a lot of risks and let our talent control the outcome of the game. I prefer to let the game breath then suffocate it with irrational decisions.

I like that approach. Rely on the talent, not a numbers sheet...

Id there anyone youd like to see as our hitting coach?

Mike Rhodes is a guy that worked in our minor league system when it was around. I think he'd be a nice fit for us here.
