Homers or strikeouts and virtually nothing in between. It's like a 9 inning home run derby. Boring as fuck.

Home run, strikeout, or walk has been the result in about 50% of plate appearances across MLB the last few years.  Really tough to watch that.

After the first 3 games, the Tigers struck out an amazing total of 46 times!!! I want that hitting coach Lloyd McClendon to get the ax!!!!


Not sure why anyone would hire a career .244 hitter as your "hitting " coach, unless it was an affirmative action thing. The guy was never a starter, at best a platoon player. Coaches should be good at what they are coaching. Maybe he could coach the team on how to keep their uniforms clean since I doubt his ever got very dirty.

LOL. You’ve never heard of Charlie Lau, or Walt Hriniak, or any of the greatest hitting coaches of the past 100 years, almost none of whom actually hit well?

It's a good point.  Many of the best baseball managers over the years were, at best, functional major league players and often never made it out of the minors.  The man who is probably the best club soccer coach in the world right now, Jurgen Klopp, never played higher than Germany's second division.  It's a common theme.

Those that can, do. Those that can’t, teach. That’s not necessarily a knock, some brilliant minds can’t physically do something but can help others who do have the athleticism.

Yeah those guys were fine back when baseball was baseball.  Lau and Hriniak and all the rest would at least have been working on the fundamentals of hitting. Guarantee you now that POS's like McClendon are pointing at the outfield walls and just saying "hit it over that".
You are better off having a big headed freak like Barry Bonds as your hitting instructor because he could actual make contact with the ball and hit a home run or two.

Charlie Lau was a lousy hitter and barely played in MLB. But he was one of the best hitting coaches that ever lived.

When Ted Williams managed the Senators, he got pissed at one of the hitters making mistakes and when the guy asked what he was doing wrong, Ted grabbed a bat and said WATCH ME. Ted openly said managing was the hardest thing he ever did. And he did a decent job, had a better record than Gil Hodges had before him.

I guarantee you it’s a lot more complicated than that. They’re studying launch angle and stuff that Lau never heard of back in the day, but it’s very complex mechanics and has little to do with how well the coach himself hit.

I'll agree to a point but it was Williams himself I believe who was critical of Hriniak for teaching players how to hit as opposed to just hitting one out of the park. 


I don't even know who every team's hitting coach is and I'm sure I watch less baseball now than you because it's impossible to watch less than nothing but I'm guessing that most of today's players aren't even actually listening to hitting coaches, good or bad.


Their focus is to go up and swing at every pitch and hope they connect. Launch angle and velocity weren't being used back in the day when baseball was entertaining and yet players still got their home runs while seemingly being able to get other hits as well.


McClendon wasn't a good player, wasn't a good manager and to those who see him every day of a season seemingly not a good hitting coach.

The biggest problem is that this happened after 3 games.  3 games!  And they need to get through about 80 including postseason.  How does that happen?  I really don't see a way they can complete a real schedule.  Even if everything goes great from here on out (and no way it does), what happens when on September 29 the best 2 teams in baseball have an outbreak and have to forfeit their postseason series?  Or play minor leaguers because no one else is available?

Wait til the end of the year Srossi when there will be a team that played 50 games and played .600 and then there will be a team that wins fewer games, has a higher winning percentage but less games over .500 because they didn't play as many games

They won't have a clue how to handle that

Manfred is now threatening the head of the players union Tony Clark that if the players can’t keep in line and stop spreading Covid, MLB may cancel the rest of the season.

The Brewers Lorenzo Cain was off to a hot start going 6 for 18 in his first 5 games, but he decided today to opt out of the rest of the season. The decision comes as the Brewers-Cardinals series was postponed due to some Covid outbreaks and he didn’t want to take any more chances.
