Not just young players. I would groan every time LNP hit a homer, rare as it was. He would then swing from his heels for a month. It always seemed he was more embarrassed that he didn't hit homers than he was about his batting average. Not a good attribute for an on base guy. It wasn't the fact that Arcia was hitting home runs but how far he was hitting them. Also a sign of swinging too hard. Arcia did have some bad luck as well this week. At least 3 line drives to first caught. Seems to have a little more upper cut to his swing now.
The second Arcia hit his grand slam, I said to myself: "The slump will begin in 3, 2, 1..." And it did. After a big hit like that, young players want that adrenaline surge every time up, and so they go fish. Now, having expected the slump, I now am confident he's enough of a gamer to correct course and start getting good swings.

Excellent stuff as usual
Thanks, i really appreciate that!
For the record, I don't care which time zone we use so long as everything I enjoy starts right around the time I get my baby to go to sleep and ends when I get tired. I'm not greedy.
