Re: Digging Deep into Plate Discipline and Unlocking a Secret to Hitting
Cyclone...it appears that this team will be in trouble in 2007 when they face pitchers who pound the strike zone.
I guess the difference in Griffey's numbers comes down to when he is behind in the count. It looks like he is becoming more of a guess hitter as he gets older, as his bat speed cannot catch up to a fastball if he is thinking curveball and vice versa.
Remember when he hit the GS off of Zumaya? I made a comment on the game thread that he was about to get blown away by a heater. Thinking about it more, he was all fastball on that pitch and he would have looked foolish on anything else.
