James Loney will drive you crazy!
Watch him – he NEVER hits the same way. He’s always tinkering with his stance and swing. Upright, crouched, bat high, bat a little lower, long stride, short stride, high leg kick, slide step.
James Loney is a kaleidoscope of batting stances and swings. Jack of all trades – master of none.
“Too many cooks spoil the stew.” That’s the saying. Makes sense to me.
Look, many of the best hitters of all time have had greatly diverse styles.
Ted Williams and Julio Franco both won batting titles – not even close in style, but both were who they were.
Who is James Loney? That depends upon which day it is. Ralph Garr? Bill Madlock? Mariano Mendosa? Mike Scioscia? Who knows?
James needs to listen to someone. Not sometwo or somethree.
James is destined to fail unless he starts to get a clue, a plan, a process. He’s lost, and the Flavor of the Week isn’t working.
Pick a style, James. Stick to it.
Keep up the way you are going and you will be out of baseball in a year!
Sometimes, there is a fine line between success and failure.
