    It’s evident Maggs has something on his mind and it’s been there since the WBC. He just doesn’t have the same look in his eyes either when batting oer on the field. I watched a show on Fox Detroit about him and you can see he is a really deep person. Deep people can let things get to them and it sticks.From watching the show, which showed his batting since he made the Bigs, I see a difference in his batting posture. His left shoulder is about 2″ higher than shown in the past, resulting in his shoulders being tilted and actually limiting his vision. The result is lost timing. If you watch you can see that he has to momentarily level his shoulders before the swing which slows him down by a couple seconds making his swing “late”. The adjustment delays his swing, resulting in lost time and less power and contact. The batting coach should catch this and help this great player fix that beautiful stroke.
