Good points. I'm actually a Baez über optimist. Mueller is going to do wicked stuff with those wrists, if only because he will wish he had had them. You don't want to "correct" a swing at this level, generally, but they will have to because, like housing prices a few years ago, that's just not sustainable. It's a hard thing for the coaches. They could have one of the best power hitters in baseball on their hands, or a total bomb. It's going to be very interesting, and their depth makes it not matter so much.
"Most fun hitter to watch"--that's a great comment. The revival of attendance numbers at Wrigley has begun, thanks to Baez. Hendricks only plays every fifth day, but Baez is out there boosting the outdoor air conditioning every day.
The other day, I watched the Mets broadcast because I thought Darling might have something interesting to say about Hendricks. He didn't--but at one point after a Baez swing and miss, Darling said that with that big swing, he would have trouble catching up with a fastball.
