Why are major league players striking out so much especially with men on base. There use to be a time when it was a disgrace for a player to strike out 100 times in a season. Now they tend to take it in stride. Even guys who don't have power are popping up, flying out and striking out at an alarming rate. I remember one year when Wade Boggs popped out less than a dozen times in one season. Is there a hitting style or stance that is better to allow players to make more solid contact and at least put the ball in play. I think a lot of players today are piling up numbers on guys that may not belong in the major leagues and when they face a guy with good stuff they are overmatched. Take the allstar game. Some of the top hitters looked like they had no chance! Some hitters can not even foul the ball of on some days.


Post a followup:
