I watched their swings then too. They hit awesomely then, but neither showed me what I see when I watch Dirks.
Watch Dirks eyes.
I am not anointing him anything. Simply, I am saying he will be capable of that role.
If I were promoting a current hitter as a future hitting coach ..I would look for how he helps his own teammates improve their own hitting.
But that's just me!
I do not have the luxury of spending time with the team.
Is Dirks someone who helps in the training of other teammates at this time?
It wasn't me who said "Dirks will one day be a good hitting coach". I merely indicated that just because a hitter might look like a 'natural' to you doesn't mean he is able to direct and lead others to achieve to the best of ''their'' ability.
Why don't you have the luxury of spending time with the team? Are you in the hospital or in jail or something?
