What is your opinion of the A.J. Pierzynski signing?
MJH on accountability
Can Michael Young teach Elvis his opposite field hitting style?
It would behoove the Young Obi-Juan to take a lesson or two from the Jedi master about how one achieves the balance of the inside out swing.
Uh, he is already quite balanced as a hitter and tries to go up the middle most of the time as shown at this link:
just because his swing isn't "inside out" every time doesnt mean he's doing something wrong.Mike Young is a gap to gap hitter but uses his best inside out swing for situational hitting (runner on 2nd no outs)... at least Elvis' chart doesnt look like this:
Ian and Michael are both far and above more productive hitters than Elvis.
If the Jedi master can teach that lightsaber trick to young Elvis he ought to do it. Elvis just strikes me as a hitter with good bat control and a decent eye, and who knows, maybe he could be like Mike if Mike gave him the secrets to that beautiful opposite field swing.
Elvis should want to be like Mike, he should beg Mike to give him Michael lessons.
