You really don't want me to say. ;)
I've already stated my opinion on this guy repeatedly.
Me too. That would be horrible.
But he's supposed to be the "real deal."
Dallas has/had a bad back.
Wood doesn't have that excuse.
So was Wood and Mcpherson.
Don't give up on Wood until after ST. Let's see if he can get going. It won't cost the Angels to give him another shot.
I would love to see him make it. Especially after most gave up on him.
Good to here he still has one fan still pulling for him.
He is now working with the best hitting coach in ML baseball ( Kevin Long )
He has told him that his swing looks great since changing back from what the Angels staff had been teaching him for the past 3 yrs.
He told him that he has had a lazy lower half which has caused a longer swing and he is not exploding his hips thru the ball and not locking out his left leg which accounts for the lack of power.
Brandon told me that in AZ fall that he was trying something different for a one week period where he struggled , then went back to what he had started with and if not for that he would have hit around .480 He has a great mental approch right now and seams to be on the right track with his swing , I spent 5 days with him at the wedding at the Montelucia resort in Pleasant Vally AZ the first week in December and he is looking forward to ST and is working his tail off right now to get ready .
Not saying that he is going to come out this spring hitting .350 with 40 HRs but he seems to be on the right track nowand you will see a different swing than you have the past 3 yrs come spring training. He still has to get playing time and work on his pitch recognition at the ML level to become a good ML hitter.
