....Theo and Co. got in his head
Crawford was always a guy with good contact abilities who didnt walk all that much
Theo and Crew probably started telling him to walk more and be more patient. Made him stop doing what he was naturally good at
Just like they've now done to Castro
Where did Theo stash Hoffa's body?
Was Theo in the Grassy Knoll?
Was that Theo's studio they used when we "landed" on the moon.
Get some new material puh-lease.
You are reading way too much into things.
Theo is in love with the almighty walk.
He thinks that is what won him rings in beantown. Actually it was 2 roided up monsters hitting 3rd and 4th in the lineup putting up 1.000 OPS's that won him the rings
Ever since the crackdown on roids, boston has been a really expensive team that hasnt won a thing.
Same with his mentor Billy Beane. Since the Mitchell report the A's have been an afterthought. People give Beane the credit for the moneyball system of finding undervalued assets. When in fact all he did was find a few roided up monsters to win MVPs for him while batting in the heart of the order
Castro has hit 300+ his entire lifeHe hit 300 as a 20 yr old rookieHe follwed it up by hitting over 300 his 2nd yrHe was hitting well over 300 a couple months into this season
It doesnt take pitchers 2 or 3 years to get a book on a guy. It doesnt take that long to get figured out
The braintrust got to him. This is a result of Theo/Jed/Dale and whoever the new "hitting" coach is trying to fix what wasnt broken
Thanks for the support
From what I have seen from theo, I say this is a 6yr plan MINIMUM
His swing has been terrible latelyhesitation....no confidence in what he is doing...terrible timing
Those are grade A symptoms of too much bad advice
"Theo and Crew probably"
Why or an opinion? You just don't know.
