I don't think pitch recognition is Viciedo's problem. He sees the ball well. His problem, like Vlad and Soriano, is that he has such a big hitting zone he tries to hit everything. As he matures and relaxes at the plate, he'll learn that just because you are capable of driving a certain pitch doesn't mean you should swing at it.

In my book, Crede has 2 less home runs than his statistics show, 4 less RBI, and one less walk (the one where he pinch hit for Uribe after coming in with a 3-0 count and taking one pitch).
