    He cannot put the bat on the ball when it is there to be hit. I'm sort of stuck on the idea that he is trying to play a big man's game with a little man's body. I just don't think he has the strength or leverage (wt wise) to swing the way he does (i.e. from his heels) and have any ability to get enough fine control of the location of the bat head. His eye and plate discipline are not the problem, it's that he basically only hits the ball by accident. Its like a broken record in that it applies to so many hitters, but he needs a shorter, more compact swing that he can control, then maybe he could begin to leverage his strike zone recognition into some success.

    That big swing also causes him to be slower out of the box as well. If he can change his swing to something similar to Polanco's, he can be successful. He can also pick up more infield hits.

    Let's just go right to Raburn with one out. No point in helping Holland get confidence.

    Man...Holland needs to be in long enough for us to get that big time home run against him.

    I'm thinking 1 run early, then a 3 run bomb. That way we can't get a threat going only to have Ogando tiger killer make his way to the mound.

    Tigers hit into DP's in the first inning so much! I even called that one before it happened. Meh, what can you do. Hopefully this doesn't happen too much tonight.

    I just don't see how you bat someone that's such a DP threat there

    oh wait they are all DP threats.

    It's like Cabrera is expecting something slower on those two swings.
