He's been doing that for years. Pitchers aren't all of a sudden going to "figure out how to pitch him". He's dropping his shoulder as he gets into his swing. It's causing a longer swing than normal and it comes from being tired, lazy, and trying to kill the ball instead of hitting it. It's the same thing that was causing his skid earlier in the year. It was pretty obvious that his swing had shortened a little bit while he was on a hot streak but it looks like he's gone back to the bad habit and it's causing him to be late on everything. He'll get it straightened out eventually. It's a bad habit that keeps re-occurring.
