2012-05-25 14:00:00 (link to chat)Have you noticed anything qualitatively different with Adam Jones this year? New approach, new mechanics, better at anything?
(Sky from The Roc, NY)
The glaring statistical difference is in the HR/FB rate. His other rates are relatively close to career marks, but more of his flies are finding the seats. He is also swinging at fewer pitches overall, which suggest a change of approach. He could be sitting dead-red on certain pitches early in the count and laying off anything that does not fit a certain profile until he gets two strikes, and perhaps he has picked up no a particular trend that pitchers had established against him. This is another area where batters who do their homework can reap an advantage.

As Crash Davis said, "If this guy starts me off with the breaking ball ... I'm taking him downtown"

2010-02-26 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any minor-league lifers you've got on your interview radar? It would be great to hear from a real Crash Davis, as opposed to the Hollywood version.
(devine from Portland)
I was actually thinking about that recently, and yes. I need to track down Tim Kester, who I believe has hung it up, although I may be wrong. Tim Kester is a wonderful story teller who has played all over, including plenty of winter ball and Europe. He'll be a must-read if you see him pop up as a Prospectus Q&A. (David Laurila)
