Why are most of our hitters swinging for the fences with two strikes?? Why not think opposite field and see the ball come in and be able to recognize? Freddie does it, Justin Johnson as well.
But there are many occasions where the rest of the team( Simmons and Heyward stand out ) where they're approach sucks, with Heyward being the biggest culprit.
Jason's job is to get on base but he seems to try to pull everything even with two strikes. With less than two strikes, go for it,swing away...but with two strikes, protect the plate and go the other way. Other teams do it, why can't these players do it? Simba almost hurt himself swinging with two strikes last night.
I'm not sure who to blame more on this philosophy that hacking away with no regard is the only option. Hitting coaches? Any of our coaches? Players themselves?
Chipper, please get in that clubhouse and talk some sense to these morons....you knew how to do it. Talk to them, please.
I'm sick of watching mediocre pitchers look like a bunch of Cy Youngs every time they face the Braves. I'm going to say this and it hurts to say it, but the Braves will never win with this approach.
Homerun hitters get into slumps, the approach to protect the plate with two strikes doesn't.
There's my rant for the month...see you next time!
