atlanta really needs chipper back. they have good pitching but they have a hard time scoring runs.
I also hope that heyward can find back to his form. he is a tremendous athlete and a sophomore slump is normal. a lot of guys have a bad second year after a good rookie season.
however I have also heard some guys talking about that his swing mechanics are not good and he relied mostly on his athleticism which pitchers now have found out.
I hope for him this is not true and if it should be true that he works on his holes in his swing.
I think walks are overrated unless you can run. If you get a walk and put the pitcher in a stretch, that helps, but the guy who walks and can’t run, most of the time he’s clogging up the bases for somebody who can run. – Dusty Baker.
