That sums it up pretty well. I realize it's a Dustyball tradition to swing early and often, but this year's team is taking it to an entirely different level. I didn't get to see today's game, but looking at Jackson's pitch count, it was obviously more of what we've seen the first nine games now. Opposing pitchers much already realize that we will swing at anything even close to the plate.
