I remember it more as swinging at pitches that you can drive and passing on those that you can't. The result should have been more walks. But also less strikeouts (especially swinging). Either way, the results weren't great overall.
I don't think upgrading hitting coach was the top priority on the list, but a change was due (it was about #6 on my list; #1-#5 assuredly won't happen).
