His power took a hit, but the tradeoff (.315 vs. .265 OBPs) is more than worth it.

    If Cozart could post in the .315 - .330 range of OBP over a full season he'd be a very good SS. I'm with you in hoping that the batting coach can help him realize that he doesn't need to swing out of his socks or try to rip a homer in every at bat.
    Thanks for doing the legwork on that part of it. I'm so champing at the bit for spring training to start. Have I said that enough times?
