Re: Self Evaluation FW
Look at all the advanced baseball analytics. A K is essentially same as any other out. Yes, in some cases a batted ball allows runner to tag and advance but grounding into DP is much worse than a K. You can't get a hit without swinging the bat but swinging at bad pitches is bad softball. The best baseball players of all time had high walk percentages because they were disciplined and knew the strike zone. Ted Williams, Babe Ruth, Barry Bonds and Mike Trout. Pitchers don't want to throw them cookies because they are great hitters. This guy had a batting average of .796 and OBA of .839. Who the hell is this poster to lecture him on how to hit? Think about it....
