Q: "@ToddZolecki: "Dom Brown in camp & said 2day he worked on hitting w/ Gary Sheffield in the offseason." @timmoneymiller is that good or bad? -Twitter User  
Philadelphia is currently in excitement mode knowing that the Phillies are currently in Clearwater preparing for the 2012 season.  Phillies fans in general seem to have two different sides when looking at 24 year old prospect Domonic Brown.  You are either A) Am patient and expect success out of the youngster or B) Trade him while there is some interest in him.  
If you know me, you know that I am pro Domonic Brown.  I do expect some form of success out of him, and even though he had a lousy 2011 I feel that he is still young and truly was not ready to play at the Major League level last season.  A full season in the minors is what he needs, and I feel management should stick to their guns and keep him down there in 2012.  I may expect success, but would not turn down the right deal at this point. Success differs from being a Major League superstar and if the Phillies need to make a deal near the trade deadline, and there is interest towards Domonic Brown, I would not be against dealing him elsewhere.
As far as working with Gary Sheffield is concerned, it is not the worst thing that could happen.  A lot of criticism towards Dom has been his awkward batting stance.  How does he go about fixing that? Well, he worked with another guy with an awkward swing.  However, Sheff was very successful with his non conventional stance.  In my opinion, he is a potential Hall of Famer.  In 22 seasons, Gary Sheffield had a .292 batting average, hit 509 home runs, and knocked in 1676 RBIs.  It could not hurt Dom working with a guy with those numbers.  
His hitting approach and ultimately his stance needs some tweaking.  A similar comparison to Domonic Brown to me is Evan Turner of the Sixers.  After one season in the NBA, Turner needed some tweaking as well and worked with the "Shot Doctor" Herb McGee in the off season.  Just like Turner, after one full season in the bigs it is too early to completely discount the future on Domonic Brown.  He too used the off season to "tweak his shot" and working with a questionable Hall of Famer certainly is not a bad thing to me. We will see how the youngster works out in the minors in 2012.
