    I don't claim to be some hitting expert but I know what my eyes tell me, which is that Aquino has a new, more up-right batting stance. I don't know if it lets him "load" his swing more or gives him an extra moment to see the pitch but but whatever it is I do think it might be playing a part in his ridiculous offensive productivity (along with the clear ball factor).
    I missed this post and didn't find out about the change to his stance and swing until tonight.

    This does give me some more hope that he's turned a developmental corner and isn't entirely a juiced ball mirage.

    Since there are no teams on the moon, I guess South Korea's far enough from Cincinnati to satisfy me.

    Watching the 1995 ALDS game 5 between NYY and SEA on YouTube. Caught the last minute of the earlier broadcast on MLB network and had serious FOMO and was lucky enough to find it.

    Aquino’s swing is modeled after Jay Buhner’s I am convinced. A Buhner like career would be a nice outcome.

    I think he looks a little like Eric Davis when he had his comeback. I think Davis had his hands lower.
