Article in Sun Times today - Walk says he has bat speed and a fantstic eye. They are working on pitch recognition and picking his pitch - but that's not the problem.

Walker says the problem is simple and is in his stance - needs to open up his body to hit.

Thing I caught is he used the word "trying" when discussing getting Dunn to get his body ready - as if he isn't taking advice.
