jaime cevallos replied to Patrick Laverty's discussion How do you get out of a hitting slump?
"Good points, Raoul. The current ethos of swing mechanics in baseball is that a coach can "ruin" a player's swing. This is wrong. This paradigm has come about because of fear. And the fear has been created by coaches who are not…"

"never stop working on mechanics. They can always improve. You just have to know what to work on. Forget the slump. It's law of averages BASED ON YOUR MECHANICS."

How To Turn Heads and Drop Jaws on Defense: Triggers, If - Thens, and JDPs

I normally write about hitting. However, everything I've discovered in hitting was made possible because of my fielding abilities. In college, I was able to essentially "buy myself more time in the lineup" because of my fielding. How many college shortstops would still have a starting position after hitting .197? Not very many. But I did. And it was only because I turned heads in the field. So in a way, this is about hitting.But let me be clear, I am not talking about fielding percentage.…See More

MLB hitting coaches are motivated by keeping their job, not developing innovative principles. If they change a franchise player’s swing, and that player gets worse, their name is forever blacklisted. Word will spread that he makes good…
