About the author

Clint Scoles

I grew up on the mean gravel roads of Iowa where I started my love for baseball from the age of 2. George Brett and the voice of Denny Matthews deepened my love even more for the Royals as my father and I spent summers listening to the team on our deck or in the car on our way to or from my little league and high school games. Sports was always the common bond that my father and I enjoyed and the Royals were in the center of that. I currently live in La Vista with my wife, two sons, two dogs and a pair of gross cats where we are grinding through until we can move somewhere warm when we retire. I own Casino Cab Company and Bluffs Affordable Auto Repair in Council Bluffs trying to build my 1% empire. If you are in the area you can find me at Omaha Storm Chasers games on most nights or just follow me on twitter @ClintScoles.

    Why would a player be allowed to keep that big of a hitch? He just is not in position to start his swing, jerking himself around by changing his balance and momentum almost 180 degrees early in his “swing”. To me, this is very disturbing from perspective of Starling’s potential and that Royal’s management would not have taken care of this before he gets out of the cage vs. the pitching machine. It also affects his pitch recognition in that this cross-momentum hitch forces him to anticipate and start his swing prematurely to counter the power-robbing and time-consuming hitch. Arghh.

    That is a great idea Jim. Did you see Mondesi’ HR last night? Out in front and still put it over the left field fence, kid has crazy strength for his age.

    Good vid. Looks like Bubba has the 2012 Frenchy swing, loopy and long. Maybe the Royals need to give Kevin Seitzer a $50k consultant fee and a plane ticket to Lexington for a few weeks.
