I know talking to [bench coach John Russell] and [hitting coach] Scott Coolbaugh, that we had to be patient because his track record is pretty good and just try to trust him and have some empathy for some of the new things that was being thrown at him. But sometimes when certain guys cool off, other guys get it going. But he's had some pretty consistent good at-bats for a while now."
