Topic - Lenny Harris
The Washington Nationals' bats are still struggling, but it doesn't appear the team's season-long offensive ineptitude will come back to haunt hitting coach Lenny Harris anytime soon.
Ten long months ago, Ryan Zimmerman might have taken the field with this subliminal sign flashing over his head: Future of the Franchise.
"We've been trying to get him to quiet down at the plate, reduce his movement," Harris said. "He hasn't been [hitting] on all cylinders because pitchers have been adjusting to him and he's been chasing and not using the whole field. But baseball is indeed a learning process, and he's one of the quickest learners and smartest hitters I've ever seen."
He said the work the second-year coach has done behind the scenes will start paying off soon.
