Man... This anxiety thing is really taking off. Everyone is trying to jump on the bandwagon. Check out this about Chris Dickerson:
"It wasn't so much a mechanical thing with my swing, which was part of it, as it was mental," Dickerson said. "I think when I came in, all the pressure I successfully alleviated from being that guy in Spring Training, I really felt the pressure once the season started. Especially at home, I was in such a negative train of thought every day, I tried to be perfect, tried to be the crowd pleaser and force myself to prove I belong as an everyday person -- more so when I wasn't playing every day."
On Monday vs. the Cardinals, Dickerson was 1-for-4 with a walk and a run scored in the Reds' 5-3 win.
Dickerson, 27, saw one of the club's sports psychologists to help improve his mindset and stop pressing at the plate. "I was mentally paralyzing myself with negativity," Dickerson said. "That was no way to play. I wasn't having any fun and was putting too much pressure on myself to do well. As long as I go out there and be myself and let things naturally take over, I will have success."
