Is it too much to hope that Blash will start swinging his bat like a normal hitter? He's all over the place!

Maybe the pitchers could slow down their offerings so he might have a fighting chance to actually make contact.

Fletcher already rotting on the bench.  Scioscia hates rookies.

Trout comes a triple short of the cycle and we lose 4-3.

Blash hits a double off Leake tonight. He will also draw at least one walk.

Barria has a better pitch count than Leake in the 5th inning.

Let's hope Blash will at least make contact between the bat and the ball instead of just whiffing at air. Baby steps.

Interesting that JMF is only logging time at 1B.

Thought he might get some looks at 3b......but we need Valbuena’s veteran presence in the lineup....he’s irreplaceable....

Swing trajectory waaay to long. Coupled with that leg kick, Lerch Cerrono will never hit at the MLB level.

He generates a lot of air conditioning with all those moving parts in his frantic swing, so at least the catcher and umpire won't overheat.

Eric Hinske needs to de-nuclearize Blash's swing. Batting cage summit.

He's trying to hit a 900-foot home run every time up. That will never work.

Whatever happened to common sense?

If Blash shortened his swing like Ohtani did, he would lose some power, but it would be well worth it.
