On the impact of Walker and Fletcher on Braves hitting

3

Some great stuff. Thus far it certainly looks like this was a brilliant idea. The players seem to agree... "I just look at each player individually and how their swing works. There’s a lot of different ways to go about hitting. You’re trying to figure out what makes a guy good, and when it’s going bad what you can do to correct it." " So now you just start looking at ways to be effective. … I’m just a small piece of the puzzle. What I do is minuscule compared to the players. There’s a lot of failure in this game and that’s one thing I’ve never forgotten is how hard it is to play. … Over the years I’ve tried to learn about mechanics as much as I could. I’ve gone all over the country talking to people, trying to steal stuff so I can help and do some small part."
