    Note to Raphael Devers

    Less than 2 weeks to go. Nothing to lose by fettings rid of that stupid stance. Try bring back your right foot in to the field of play. Point that toe rowards the pitcjer instead of the second baseman.And for Yor Own Sake;

    PS
    I bet you never saw a golfer exercising his leg while trying to hit a golf ball.
    Ask your self what this extra exercise is suppose to do.

    Tiny sample size.

    He had those numbers early in the year,m and I heard the same thing. Some even wanted to demote him.

    Don't read too much into simple slumps.

    Both he and Beni went into slumps. I am not going to suggest corrections for Devers because when he was hot, he hit balls in and out of the strike zone. Seemed like a natural hitter who started to think too much.

    He's a pure hitter. He's always been that.

    I wouldn't mess with a thing. Sometimes a great line-up needs a guy that doesn't fit the mold of the other hitters- like Adrian Beltre did way back when.

    To-night, agter reassuring myself to how bad the Jets are, I switched to baseball. Limited schedule, but I caufgt the last inning of the Baltimore age, I was looking for other MLB hitters who were using a Dever's Stance. I switched from one game to another (6 in all), and after catching over 50 At Bats different At Bats,

    There was one. Plays for the Cubs

    PS/ Since the MLBExtraInnings broadcast end at the end of this month, I wouldn't waste spend $32 to catch the rest of their seaspn which ends at the end the regular season. I will think hard about next season, because of the shitty and dmultplis Mike Trout commercials;s. "I just wnna play", he wails!

    This crazy stance went out out years ago. Nobody uses it any more. I just hope he starts hitting again. I don't really care how he does it. But the stance makes no sense. THAT'S WHY NOBOY ELSE USES IT ANY MORE1
