There aren't many harder tasks than rolling up your sleeves and replacing one of the most beloved players in Astros history as hitting coach, but Mike Barnett will be doing just that this season as he takes over for Jeff Bagwell. Barnett was profiled by Brian McTaggart yesterday as he stopped off in Kissimmee to check in with some of the Astros younger hitters like Brett Wallace and Jason Castro.
Unfortunately, he was also profiled by this hideous photo, which I will shield unseeing eyes from by placing after the jump.
That's uh...a little too close to Brian Peppers in my eyes. Maybe it's just me.
