Smooth transition

CLEVELAND -- Great news today about Aaron Holbert. The blog favorite, who was released by the Bats after a cameo appearance earlier this year, has been named hitting coach for the GCL Reds.

I remember sitting in the stands in Sarasota watching an instructional league game a couple years ago with Tim Naehring and Holbert, who lives in the area and had dropped in to say hello. After he left, Naehring said he'd do everything he could to get Holbert into the coaching ranks whenever he hung 'em up, and after getting to know Aaron a bit last year, I can see why.

He should be a great influence on the younger players in the system. A consummate pro with an extremely positive attitude. Good for him.
