"Unprompted, Mike Schmidt ticked off two names that, well, "Tick me off. Pat Burrell and Adam Dunn, because they strike out so much...Now I know that if I had choked up on the bat with two strikes and hadn't been so aggressive and gave in to the pitcher, I wouldn't have struck out so much. And that's what guys like Dunn and Burrell have to realize," Schmidt added..."If you could instill in Dunn and Burrell that they want to become contact hitters ... I mean, why would Dunn and Burrell watch what Pujols does and not want to be like him, as good as he is? When their careers are over, they are going to wonder how much they left on the table, how much they left on the field. If only they had choked up with two strikes, spread their stances out. What they are doing now is not great, it is mediocrity."
BWAAHAHAHAHAAHAHHAHA - I brought up the strikeout debate! Bring it on!
Hmm...maybe Michael was really Michael Jack Schmidt!
