    His bat speed really seems to have dropped (most likely due to the shoulder injury) and he is also getting on top of the ball, basically his swing is messed up. Every now and then you see a glimpse of that old swing but he is still struggling to find it consistently. Most likely he won't completely find it all until he can get into the offseason watch a bunch of tape and consistently work on it.

      Right, and there are some that blame Parrish for screwing it up in the first place.

        His swing is all screwed up and the exceptional plate discipline he showed last year is often not in evidence. I don't think guys just get here and decide to change something that works. He's clearly been influenced by the staff (I would blame Gonzalez nearly as much as Parrish) and it's been largely in a negative direction. I've seen this happen countless times when a coach who thinks he knows best alters the already successful routine of an advanced player.

          What's up with Heyward? He was supposed to be the next big thing.
