Are you dense? How many times are you going to be bent over by a pitcher throwing to the outside corner .... TIME after TIME after TIME?
Maybe this is Chambliss's fault ... I don't know.
How has he not been working on this .... he has shown no improvement on hitting that pitch.
I understand the Sophmore slump ... but JESUS.
Heyward and Hosmer are pretty good examples of highly thought of guys doing poorly in their second years.
I think if Catricala were raking you could send Ackley down, shift Seager over to second and try him there, but as of right now there isn't a good replacement for Ackley.
I do hope that Carp comes up when his rehab is over and they send Smoak down. Talk about frustrating.

Getting to the point and can't stand to look at his face.
Oh, but Dustin takes a lot of pitches right down the middle. I don't know what kind of a pitch he's looking for, anyway.
I think he has been hitless in the last 6 games but how many consecutive times at bat without a hit. It should be around 20 or so. Help.
2-2 tonight with a BB.
And both his hits were hit hard ... one being an outside pitch opposite field double.
Maybe he is coming out of it ... we can only hope.
