  1. Very interesting piece – definitely will be following Chiz closely this season to see if the beautiful swing translates to results.

    Fantastic piece. Keep these coming – provides qualitative insight to advanced statistics.

  2. Just out of curiosity…why did it take 5 months to post this interview?

  3. That is a fair question with a fairly simple answer[s]: Once the season gets into the month of August, I begin accumulating a backlog of interviews, as it is less convenient to conduct them during the off-season. And while some interviews are time-sensitive, ones like this — a discussion of hitting approach — really aren’t, and are thus more easily held for a later date.

  4. I definitely appreciate these interviews. They’re always a good read.

  5. Great stuff — watched him in ST last year, versus the Reds (Goodyear Park) and you knew he belonged. Hit a monster HR late in the game. I’m sold on the kid.

  6. Nice piece David.

    For a guy that had his makeup questioned, he seems like he’s matured quite a bit. Very even keeled. What did you think of his makeup?
