I've been thinking that a lot of the problems are just that he is not physically seeing the ball.
How many times have we seen a pitcher groove a mistake fastball to him, straight as an arrow down the dead center of the plate, where the vast majority of AA players would have hit it to the moon... only for him to not even twitch or bat an eyelid as it screams past him to the mitt? A hundred? A thousand?
Just his routine late reactions to the vast majority of the pitches thrown to him the last few seasons have convinced me that he is commonly having issues visually picking up the baseball.
Just to be clear about one thing: the poll wasn’t about whether the players should have been punished. The poll was about whether the punishment to the organization was stiff enough. It’s a different question.
Well aren't you just a ray of sunshine and positivity. Even if he's a less terrible player, he's still somewhat terrible. And now with Mountcastle appearing to be ready and Mancini still here, Davis just needs to go.
I'm pretty much ready to condemn him to complete failure. I don't see how he gets significantly better.
In the NBA, David Stern. I think the new guy, Adam Silver, is well liked. Pete Rozelle in the NFL.
In MLB, Bart Giamatti gets liked because he banned Pete Rose and was a smart guy who wrote Green Fields of The Mind.
