Re: Digging Deep into Plate Discipline and Unlocking a Secret to Hitting
These numbers are exactly the reason why I would trade Wily Mo before I trade Kearns. Wily Mo survives solely on his superhuman strength, and not much else, as his plate discipline is Tony Womack-esque. I think this is a clear result of his lack of time in the minors, where most players learn the fundamentals of plate discipline that serve them well later in their career. Those couple of years he spent wasting away on the Reds bench, rather than playing full time in the minors, may have sighnificantly harmed him.
On the subject of Tony Womack, remind me again why he's on this team? Cripes.
Oh, and that was a great post Cyclone. Nice work, as usual.
We'll burn that bridge when we get to it.
