i love the guy, and the slow start doesnt bother me one bit BUT does the guy get into the most 0-2 counts EVER or what?
i bet if you could go back to his every at bat last and this year he is in 0-2 counts like 70% of the time.....its insane.
although it early, his lack of power from the end of last year and begininnig of this year is starting to worry me, i think last year in june he had 10 hrs, aftre that he has been really lacking so far.....its still early but that is in the back of my head
The problem with David Wright is the fans, they expect Albert Pujols, but Wright isn't Pujols and never will be. He's more like Scott Rolen than Pujols with the bat, and that isn't the worst thing in the world. Wright is a very good player, I have no worries about him.
Somewhat on topic this time, I do agree it seems like he is almost always behind in the count though, but at the same time he seems to hit better with 2 Strikes, as he shortens up his swing.
I do think he'd be a better overall hitter if he didn't take as many strikes though. Make the pitchers work more to get you to 2 strikes.
i understand that he is a good hitter when he shortens up, but wouldnt it be better to be in a position to look for your pitch to hit, rather then just trying to make sure you dont make an out? just frustrating sometimes.
