Drew Stubbs, you have so much potential.
In 2010 you were a beast, stealing bases and hitting bombs. You started to trail off in 2011, and this season was a complete debacle. Here's the thing—your stance and swing look exactly the same as they always have. Your approach to each at-bat seems to be the same as well.
Here's what you should change: Widen your stance and lower your hands just a bit. We want short and quick. This way, you realize you have more time to decide whether it's a good pitch to hit or not.
You're gonna sacrifice some of your power with this approach, but we need you on base, brother. Under .300 OBP is not gonna cut it. It's gonna get you benched and perhaps traded.
Shorten up and just try to hit line drives up the middle—no overswinging, no swinging for the fences and no rolling over grounders to the left side. If it's not a strike, leave it be. If it is a strike, short and quick through the ball. More singles and more walks.
You get on base, say at a .350 clip, you're a 50-60 SB guy, and you get a fat contract.
