Jo Adell, at Driveline

This is fake news.

Adell is actually at Drive Time buying a new sports car.

That was the first thing that popped into my head when I read the headline. If he is looking for an overpriced, high-mileage car with a sketchy past financed at a ridiculously high interest rate, there are several places that I could direct him to.

Honestly every batting coach I ever worked under including Rod Carew preached a stride of at least 2-2.5 times my core/hips unless the pitcher was working me inside at which point it was still about keeping the load back and dropping the front foot -- he seems to be right around that.

Also not a little league hero, but did manage a year as a pine polisher at ASU.  No Driveline of course in those days.  Hitting cage sessions were pretty much jump in there and swing while Winkles and Reggie Jackson watched (it was his last year before being drafted as a junior IIRC).  Jackson was stride manic, his bellowing "YOUR STRIDE IS AFU" could be heard for miles.  He'd jump in the cage, draw a line at "hip double", and explain (in very direct terms) this is your new landing spot.  Winkles would quietly nod.   Agree, Adell looks to be in that stride range.  I'm optimistic he can improve his hitting, the fielding thing is another matter.
