Big Papi has been looking much better from the beginning of the season. He's putting weight on his leg, he's checking his swing on pitches that in April he was flailing at, and he has raised his AVG 50 points so far in the month of May.
As points of comparison....
Papi's 55AB's in May... 18 Hits, 30 Total Bases, 8K's, 8BB's (2 Intentional)
Papi's 53AB's to start the season... 6 hits, 9 Total Bases, 12K's, 9BB's (1 Intentional in 1st game of the season)
He's not looking like the monster that baseball fans have come to expect out of him, but is looking much better and much more comfortable at the plate.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
