G#ddam. I knew you would inject some unrealistic optimism for Korey.
He needs more help than his swing. Trust me, I don't especially like the Cubs but I take the time to watch them (and no, i don't root against them).
The truth is the guy is not a leadoff hitter, never will be. And contrary to your belief, it's not his swing. It's the fact that "plate discipline" is not in his vocabulary. I don't think there is an 0-2 high fastball that Korey just can't resist (see Juan Uribe).
