The reason I ask is just a hunch as I looked at his stats with the bases loaded. He's 10 for 13 this year hitting .769 with an astronomical ops of 1.918. The theory is with the bases loaded he knows he's going to get good pitches (less outside off of the plate) otherwise the pitcher walks in a run, so he's squaring up.
Now (during his improved August) if he is laying off of the outside pitches that were his kryptonite earlier this year, pitchers are having to pitch more inside and he is squaring up the inside pitches. Just a guess can anyone prove it?
