I didn't see a spray chart, but MLB network did show Ichiros hits by direction last week when his agent announced hes done playing for this season but not retiring.

I cant remember the exact numbers, but it was something like 750+ to left, 750+ to right 800+ to center and 700+ on the infield. It was pretty insane at how even the numbers were.



and this is the guy that should be teaching hitting in the era of the shift, not launch angle, strike outs don't matter guy.



Agreed.

pure hitting is almost a lost art in todays sabermetrics world.
With Ichiro more or less finished, I think the chances of a .400 season, and 57 game hit streak have retired as well.


The chances of Ichiro doing those things retired almost a decade ago.

Vlad Guerrero Jr., though.


His ass already resembles a potroast.


And he's already one of the best hitting prospects ever.


I was poking around on Baseball Reference and realized that he plays on the same team as Dante Bichette's son. And Craig Biggio's son is on the team, too! WTF?


Yep. It makes me feel old.

Guerrero is the best prospect in baseball and Bichette is Top 10 or so. They're 19 and 20 and dominating in AA... that's super impressive. Biggio looked like just an org guy until this year because all he could ever do is walk a whole bunch, but all of a sudden he's hitting for a ton of power this year, so he may have a chance of actually turning into something.

Roger Clemens's son is playing a level below them, too.


They added Jeff Conine's son in the second round yesterday. Having grown up watching baseball in the '90s, this feels weird.

The Yankees drafted an ambidextrous pitcher that throws 93-94 right handed and 90-91 left handed. He also switch hits, and he was drafted as a Carcher.

This would be setting a dangerous precedent. My posts are on topic, relevant, and informative. Are you willing to offer this service in thread's of mine where I don't care for a certain person and/or their replies?
