Does anyone notice that of the Tigers vaunted hitters, Pudge, Maggs, and Dmitri, that is it their #6 hitter who despite hitting over .400 with steriodial power who is talking about how he has to improve his approach at the plate. Striking out and not walking enough are a concern to Shelton.
This guy just doesn't get it, he obviously shouldn't be hitting 6th. He need to be moved down to 9th. That way there won't be any pressure on him to work on his game. <sarcasm>
What I would give to see Maggs, Pudge, and the Fatman talk about trying to improve their approaces at the plate. Pudge could vow to acknowledge the situation (and that it doesn't call for the 3 hacks and a sit approach that he favors so much), Maggs could try to learn how to hit line-drives, and the Fatman could try to think of his bat as a fork. That would insure he makes better contact.
In the meantime move Shelton up to third!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
