Now whether or not some of these "hitters" can actually do something other than try to pull the ball for an 800 foot home run remains to be seen but I like the fact that Robin recognizes the problem and is going to have him and his staff work on it.
With the addition of Flowers I think strike outs are only going to be more of a problem. There might be 400 strikeouts between him and Dunn alone.
