He is one of the best bad ball hitters I have seen. He doesn't need to walk. I think its funny that everybody gets on him for it. He never will have a average walk rate. He can hit and he knows it.
Ya. But he didn't walk.
What a great game by Castro. I mean his plate discipline all day was spectacular, taking balls and attacking anything elevated out over the plate. Super encouraging.
I know you're trolling, but seriously, if he gets drivable pitches like he did in each of his AB's today, I don't want him to walk. I want him driving the ball all over the ball park like he did today.
Taking balls outside the zone isn't all about getting walks. It's about getting your pitch, and doing something with it. What the FO's been preaching all along.
No doubt, but the pitches that he does the most damage on are the meatballs. And he gets more of those if he lays off the bad ones.
