Brett Gardner: Revamped

So I didn't know this, but Brett Gardner did a bit of an overhaul on his swing this year. According to PeteAbe, Kevin Long approached Gardner after he had gotten sent down (August) and asked him to "plant his foot firmly and open up his stance". Before this, Gardner "took a big stride, leaving his body unbalanced and unable to generate power". The new stance mirrors Albert Pujols. It certainly seems to be paying off in camp, and lets hope it continues during the season.
