MachadOboutManny Posted August 4, 2013 Share Posted August 4, 2013 He is talented, but absolutely reckless. He takes swings you dont see anywhere else and he does it all the time. He is talented enough to have fine numbers with this approach, but it would be nice if he made the pitcher work every time he was up. I love to hear baseball people talk about "recognizing the rotation" -- AJ swings at pitches that are eight inches outside, and low, twenty feet before they reach the dish... and then they break much further down and away....but AJ has already decided he is in...whatever is coming, AJ is in! Its almost as if his plan is to swing at a wild pitch and then run first. He and Markakis need to have a chat...they both need a little of what the other has. Nick makes me fear the nine man infield and AJ looks like he thinks hes in a charity softball game. When Nick bats I feel like I can see him turning sixty years old right in front of my eyes. Meanwhile, AJ has a guy with forty HRs behind him, and he doesnt make anyone throw him a strike. Hes is the one guy who seems to have AJ on his mind first and the team second. It is disappointing to watch at times. I believe the Os will make the playoffs, I believe we made three unnecessary trades, I believe this is heaven to no one else but me.
