back to hitting

Great article about Young and Gomez. If you can't read it, the gist is that Gomez and Young have a batting average of .324 and .320 respectively when they are hitting pitches in the zone and .181 and .206 respectively when they are trying to hit pitches outside the zone. The writer is pleading for patience from Gomez and Young, but I believe that the true cause of the problem is bad coaching, as I argued in the last several posts here. Effective managers and hitting coaches would have seen the problem and tried to make changes. Apparently Gardy and Varva don't...

You know, the numbers don't lie. I have been an ardent Gardy supporter (not so much Vavra) despite everything, but that really does make me sad.

However, there have been several reports that Delmon isn't taking instruction well (not that Vavra gives good instruction), and that his dad is still getting in the way.

I think that the whole Twins staff need a major overhaul this offseason.
