I'm really irritated at Robin's comments about guys wanting to get out of slumps by "hitting and not walking".

Manto's over-aggressive swing-first philosophy just doesn't work and/or the opposing pitchers have figured out how to get ahead in counts swinging the AB in their favor.

We seem to have a group of ridiculously impatient hitters, but when the coaching staff preaches that as well, it doesn't help.

Maybe these guys should take a pitch every once in a while, they may get better pitches to hit.
