He can kill the fastball everytime, no matter where it is thrown. However, any offspeed and he is fanning the fans...

So that's what the pitchers throw him :-b

Or better yet, Gold Gloves awarded for subpar defense. O:-)

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

He's hitting the ball ok right now, just not getting a ton of hits. He hasn't been striking out as much and the hits have been sharper. His problem is that his swing isn't quite right with the new stance, his weight isn't shifting properly and he's swinging a bit off balanced.

Jones is indeed failing, even with his new and improved stance. ETFDA, sweet sig.
