I don't know why he changed his swing as compared to last year, or if he even knows he did. With all the video they watch of themselves I don't know how he can miss it. This year he is dropping his front shoulder DRASTICALLY, So much so, that he is missing underneath the ball on almost every swing I've studied of his this year. Even if he makes contact, he's going to get way underneath it. He needs to learn not to rock forward, then back solely with his upper body if he is going to drive the ball. He should use his legs for that. Until he notices that, I have a bad feeling about him going forward for the near future. I'm not one to change my opinion on a guy when we're only 5 games into the season, but when there's a noticeable flaw in his swing mechanics as compared to his past swing, it worries me a little. I don't care what his avg is this early in the season, but the mechanical flaw is definitely worrisome if it does not get corrected.
