For those who watch the games, is Beckham actually looking better at the plate, or is it just that his doinks and grounders are experiencing a period of falling in? I notice he is honoring the tradition of not walking much.
He is driving the ball more with line drives, although last night he had a little doink hit to RF and a roller in the infield that died between the P and 3B. I like his approach and crouched stance at the plate though.
