I would add that I would also like to see Manto work with Viciedo on his hitting approach. Next to his parents, I am sure that I am Dayan Viciedo’s Number 1 fan on the Planet, but as the season progressed, I was annoyed with Viciedo’s approach at the plate. Tank was swinging at everything and had no patience or discipline whatsoever.
I kept yelling at my TV when he was at bat (or at him when I was at the games):
I guess he didn’t hear me, because the louder I yelled, the worse he looked. Overall, Viciedo had a good season but he needs to learn the strike zone and gain some discipline at the plate.
