“I’m really impressed with what I’ve seen,” Collins said. “His swing is absolutely, completely different than it was last year. He’s really quited down all the action he had at home plate. He knows he needed to do it. The batting practices are outstanding. He’s hitting a lots of balls to center field, left-center field.”
Three beat writers have all commented that Davis is STILL dropping his hands before every swing. That’s a problem.
I saw a shot of Ike Davis last week (from Adam Rubin) following through on a swing where he was so off balance he looked like he was going to fall over.
Spring Training games begin next week. Let’s wait and see how he fares on a Stephen Strasburg breaking pitch before we start using words like “brilliant, outstanding and impressive” to describe Ike Davis’ swing.
