Alderson Needs To Take Action On Distractions Before It’s Too Late

Featured Post: Seeking A Villain For The Mets’ Hitting Woes

An incredible 46 strikeouts in the Mets’ last four games… Hmmm. Let’s see, whom can we blame? I know, lets blame batting coach Dave Hudgens and his approach to work the count, be selective, and get a pitch and drive it. That’s it, his approach is wrong.
