    Yeah, just more proof that small sample sizes, like 18 games in a season, don't really mean much. They Royals just got lucky against us last year. It was unfortunate given the circumstances, but I really hated how a lot of people, mainly Hawk Harrelson, just fed the fanbase all this **** about how the Royals play us tough and didn't play anyone else at that level. Random variation, it happens a lot in baseball.

    Dunn is slugging over .600 in the last 34 games. He's been really, really good.

    If Jeff Manto hadn't ****ed around with Dunner, he'd be having quite a productive season. I loathe Jeff Manto. I have ever since he was hired. Dude is a complete ****ing moron.

    Funny thing is Walker is proving that he sucks in Atlanta, too. Most of those guys have really low averages and a ton of home runs. I find it humorous.

    I just wish we would hire a hitting coach that, you know, actually was a good hitter. Jeff Manto; career .744 OPS. Greg Walker: Career.775 OPS. These guys weren't good hitters when they played. Why would anyone think they would be good teachers?

    I mean, I would much prefer a Calculus teacher who received straight A's in Calculus in college, as opposed to a teacher who was a straight C student and didn't really know what they were doing.

    I am of the opinion that most major league hitters have a good idea of what their strengths and weaknesses are. Obviously there are some outliers. I don't think Tank has cognitive function high enough to understand why he strikes out so much. But for the most part, players know what pitches they hit well and how to work themselves into position to get as many of those pitches as possible. I think hitting coaches are very detrimental when they start messing around with hitters, ala Manto on Dunn, and try to sculpt them into a certain image.

    Honestly, I think it would be more beneficial for teams to have sports psychiatrists then hitting coaches. But what do I know? Things have been done the same way for 130 years according to Hawk Harrelson. Obviously there is no way to improve upon coaching methods and convention wisdom in a time period like that. Just look at surgery and medicine. We are still using practices from the 1880's aren't we?
