  • Shawn Green has been feeling for the ball. He's been pressing, and he looks awful at the plate. He's a streaky guy in the first place, and he's trying too hard because the Dodgers aren't hitting and I think he feels like he's got to justify the money he's making. He's expanding the zone and looks confused at the plate. I think people have been trying to get him to go the other way, but the problem is, he's trying to do that with pitches he should pull. Then, when there's something he should take the other way, he's trying to pull.
