In this podcast I analyze a hitting coach who is supposed to be one of the best in the game.  I don't criticize because I want to tear him down particularly.  I want to tear down the entire system, because it's a mess.  The blind are leading the blind.  People think coaching swing mechanics in baseball has improved a great deal in the past few years due to the "new school" approach.  But it's just as bad as it was in the seventies, eighties, and nineties.
