I used to bat leadoff for my team, despite being the slowest runner, so me getting on base was key. When I splumped, I was put at 7th or something, which pissed me off. It's not like it relieved some pressure, because they'd be telling me to make all these adjustments, and carefully analyzed everything I was doing. For me, I would have rather had them let me work it out myself (partially because I know more about hitting than my coaches do, adn they were only trying to change my style for the sake of change). Don't bring undue attention is my view. Maybe for some guys moving them in the order would help, but I think it made me stay in the slump. For some people, I guess they feel they have something to prove, so they try harder. But if you're not trying your hardest all the time, then there's already a problem. This is part of the reason why I don't respect "clutch" players like Kobe Bryant. If they can be that good in the last 5 minutes of a game, they should be that good all the time.
