Slump? I ain't in no slump. I just ain't hitting.

One of my favorite Yogi Berra quotes, thought he says he didn't say all the things he said. Anyway, we chased Denbo out of town because the team was taking too many pitches. Now, well we are swinging at everything and things aren't great. Maybe there is a middle ground somewhere.

We've struck out 109 times now, leading the league by a bunch. Cito has said he isn't worried about our strikeouts because 'we are a team of power hitters and power hitters strikeout a lot'. You think maybe this is part of the problem? Maybe we could tell them they are allowed to cut down on the swing some? At least when we get to two strikes? Most of the time, guys seem to be going up there with the idea of hitting a  homer. 

Maybe we could try to get some guys on base too. We shall see, shouldn't judge a time when it is going bad or when it is going good. But watching guys strikeout is less than fun.
