The players that stick are almost universally studious. I realize it's unclear, but learning is part of developing as a hitter. It's not just reps.
I've seen some clueless hitters in my day, and frankly, Bruce (May-July 2009) is right there at the top. Maybe he can't help Bruce, but right now I'd be throwing the kitchen sink at the kid because it's not pretty.
