I don't buy it. I think they're head's either screwed on right for the game or it isn't


I don't buy the 'killing the confidence' thing for batters at all. It's all mechanics, timing, learning pitchers. *thinking* and being able to pick up on spin.

All the other talk is hogwash.

The pitchers learn the holes in a batter's swing by studying video and consulting coach's.

It's up to the batter to learn what pitchers want to do to them and adjust.

Find out how many hitting & pitching instructors each MLB team has then find out how any shrinks each team has on the pay role . It's 4:1 in the head Dr.

Sure but I put no stock in either. I stated that in my first sentence.

Go back to the Natural. Stay off liquor and women and there's a shot.

Has some to do with confidence and that's why there's AAA, but a lot more about ability and learning what pitchers are doing. No shrink will fix that, though I'm sure their fee schedule doesn't reflect that fact.

Booze & women might be the ole pastime of MLB players past like Joe Pepitone , Reggie Jackson today's players look like interests more of hair color & tattoos.

don't think Conforto is ruined at all; he needs to learn about big league hitting like many other young hitters; if he does, he hits 3rd

# 17 Keith in the booth likes him ...don't think Collins does . In every work place certain guys get a pass it happens all the time ...Di Di & Hicks on the Yanks can do no wrong How they are still here ? only proves one thing ,front office likes them.

Hicks should have been gone long time ago. If you don't like didi I think you had too much southern sun

TON of errors last year & 265 average is not impressive , for a guy 4 or 5 years in the bigs is not good. He is having a better year because they kept him in there . Favorites ?
Sure remember Drew @ 2nd base ?

He's been playing great this year and you're not going to find much better.

He's fine batting .289 with 17 HRs.

I think you're on something, better change the meds.

The question would be where would they even go to replace didi? They had/have so many holes it's like lacy Swiss. I know you hate joey and I've not been a cashman rah rah fan either but I MO Didi is not the problem. He'd be way down on my priority list.
