It is never too early to talk some baseball, particularly not when you've got a new head coach and a new outlook for the Orange and Green.
This will be the first year at the helm for Robert Lucas.
The Rattlers kick their season off in a couple of weeks, and so far all indications point to immediate improvement.
"Right now we're kind of in limbo as to where we are trying to develop as a team because most of the guys we have this year are guys back from last year. We've had a pretty good fall practice, our kids played a lot better than they did last year," says Lucas.
