Sure. Do I think he can become more patient? He's improved upon it every year.
Richar: good plate discipline, and the ability foul tough pitches off. He wasn't out of the AB when he got down in the count, he worked himself back into it.
Your judgment comes off of 4 months and 3 months, respectively. I guess if you're not an Evan Longoria, you suck.
Haha, my favorite part is the Richar comment. Damn, we couldn't fix that guy who spent just about one year in the organization. If you're going to be pissed about something involving Richar, lament the fact we gave up a guy who is a hell of a lot better than him in the trade.
