And what you don't realize is that he bid 60 plus dollars of his 100 FAAB budget on him. He had a plan rag dolling Springer to serve his gain. While there may be some truth to what he said, it's been 10 games. Come back at the end of June and sing his praises then.
I was actually going to trade him since there was so much hype surrounding him.
My point was that there has never been a successful major league baseball player with a contact rate of 65% or below. If he were to be successful, he would have been the first one.
He obviously had ability, I think he needs a better hitting coach. He just needs to choke up on the bat a little bit and try to put the ball in play when he has two strikes on him. He has the speed to leg out infield single. Doesn't have to swing for XBH every time.
