I concur his swing is too long. I recall Doug saying he hadn't seen that out of him previously which eased some concerns about it a bit. Though here we now have someone else state he was doing it the prior year, not good. I only saw him play at Miami and it wasn't noticeable there but we are talking about a completely different level for him now. But too small a sample for a swing, nonsense.
