Re: Is Junior an example?
This year's Griffey is an example of what happens when he stays patient at the plate. That's why he's getting on base at such a high rate, he's leading the team in walks. Last year was by far his worst year in terms of patience. I've said it over and over again: If Jr. stays patient at the plate and his wrist gets completely healthy he's going to have a fantastic season. His SLG % is still low but it's sky rocketing from where it was earlier this season, and it's on it's way up because his wrist is probably starting to get healthy.
The biggest thing Jr. could do this season to improve on last year's numbers is to BE PATIENT. And for the most part he has this season. And he'll have a very productive season if it continues.
And I agree with what Dougdirt said, although to this point in the season I'd add Brandon Phillips to that list.
