Hopefully, Bruce can put this one in his rearview mirror and get on with the business of destroying minor league pitching.
Spin? That's not spin. Sounds to me like he analyzed his play, recognized his flaw and corrected for it the next game. That, my friend, is what it takes to be a winner.
Sabermetrics can be boiled down to this simple truism: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.
