Sexson at-bats for April 5th
I don’t even need to show you pictures.
I will, quickly, note that what we’ve been saying is not that Sexson’s helpless, or never going to get hits — it’s that his bat speed is appreciably slower than it was when he was an effective hitter. Then his whole approach degrades quickly, because he has to cheat to make good contact, guess a lot, and let a lot of pitches go by. The result is, as Steve Nelson’s pointed out a couple times in comments, the classic old player crash: walks go up, average dives, and power declines though when they do make contact, by guess, cheat, or luck, the ball can still go a long way, because he’s still strong.
