The Twins are talking about AL pitching catching up to Ford, whose tendency to pull the ball they see as exploitable by opponents. The fact that they are talking about this publicly would indicate that it is common knowledge and that they expct his performance to suffer a hit of some kind, at least until the work Ford is doing with hitting coach Scott Ulger shows results. Hopefully those results will not be a messed up swing and serious problems for Ford.
Anybody have any comparable information? I just signed him for 3 years in my contract league. If he's already getting worked over, I need to know now so I can move him before I'm stuck with his salary while he's in the minors - or worse.
