Remember back in spring training, when Mark DeRosa was offering hitting advice to Danny Espinosa, and supposedly identified (and corrected) a loop in Danny's swing?
No? Well here's hitting coach Derosa during Spring Training, via Nationals.com:
"There were some fundamental things I thought he (Espinosa) did wrong. Talking to [hitting coach] Rick [Eckstein] and Davey, they agreed as well. I'm trying to change Espi's philosophies on the way he thinks about going about the offensive side of it. I'm just trying to help him.I brought him out to the cage and showed him a different way on how to go about it. I think it will cut down on his strikeouts. I think it will raise his average. Obviously, the power is there. He'll hit for a higher average and put more balls in play and he is going to hit more homers."
Heres hoping DeRosa's fix takes soon, because Davey is sticking with his Danny.
