I don't see him having sustained success with that stance, but I guess we shall see. I think the bigger issue with him is the load in his swing. It's too long and loopy and his stride doesn't seem consistent. I'm sure it won't take that long to see that his average right now is a mirage. That doink to RF last night is more in line with what type of hitter Beckham has become than anything.
