I love Bruce, but I hope the noise of him needing to go the other way isn't making him change his approach that much. I understand wanting to be more consistent, but he's at his best when he's turning on balls.
You just don't get it. He's not going to change his approach, and he's going to have better numbers in every area---including slugging, HRs and RBIs.
His slugging numbers aren't low because he changed his approach, they're low because he started so slow (before changing his approach and heating up).
