Home run derby captains


Recommended Posts

Hopefully it doesn't run Trumbos swing like last year. Came out of the all-star break trying to smash every pitch out of the park and never really got his swing back until ST

 

Lol

 

This line of thinking always kills me.  There was nothing different about Trumbo's swing.  Most statistical projections had him regressing because of an unsustainably high bapip.  He regressed.  It had nothing to do with taking glorified BP.

Its a common thing for players to come out of the derby and struggle with their swing. I watched Trumbo all last year and it wad like night and day from the beginning of the season. He looked almost as bad as Hamilton does right now. Now he is approaching the ABs much better. Have you never heard of this happening to a player?

But whatever, statistical PROJECTIONS mean a lot more then actually watching his approach at the plate and seeing his ACTUAL stats. He didn't just regress, he completely fell apart.

Trumbo was crushing the ball right after the ASB last year and hit a half dozen HRs in the first 8-10 games.  His sharp decline coincided with the dislocated rib he suffered.  

 

The derby ruining swings is superstitious nonsense.  There are just as many examples of players who did just fine in the second half after participating as there are of those who declined.

Trumbo after the Home Run Derby.

 

61 AB, 18 Hits, 5 HR, 12 RBI, 0.295 Avg, 0.360 OBP, 0.557 SLG, 0.917 OPS

 

Then he dislocated his rib.  

 

From that point on.  

0-3 July 31

.204/.263/.287/.550 August

.183/.205/.296/.501 September

I didn't know about his rib. I guess my reasoning is pure speculation. Your guys reasoning is much more solid. I just have heard it a lot growing up. Of course there are plenty of examples of people coming out of the ASB hitting fine but I just thought out was something that happens to people sometimes and given that it was Trumbos first time in the derby and how he looked at the plate. I thought it a plausible explanation.
