Bill Mueller wasted little time getting to work. When I walked into the park today, he was already leaning against the back of the batting cage, wearing uni No. 3, taking in a session of early batting practice. I’m guessing he won’t be the hitting coach for long, though. I would be surprised if they don’t have a permanent one in place by the time the Dodgers get back from this next road trip. Billy is walking to the cage again right now to hang the hitting schedule on the cage, and there is a large media contingent waiting to talk to him near the dugout after he does that. Should be an interesting few days for him, if nothing else.
