Have the %s of inside FBs, and FBs in general, changed through thr year? It makes sense he would see more curves/sliders and inside FBs earlier in the year from RH pitchers trying to take advantage of his tentativeness from the concussion recovery.

Better coverage but he's still vulnerable to the outside pitch. I'd really like to see him snuggle up to the plate like Willingham.

He's gotten back in his groove over the past month. It sure took him long enough!
