There's been talk that the pressure of performing after signing has mounted. And that he's chased that frustration with a ton of work\watching video. Probably not something he's ever had to do; there's an art to balancing all that. When those haven't worked, Alberts always there to overload you with facts and stats..


I'm imagining a bunch of Gordon Ramsay-style memes with Jeff Albert yelling advice at Goldschmidt.

Is this his worst half ever, or at least since he was young?
Has anyone compared his underwhelmitude with Tino's?
Just a couple questions I have.

Please retitle the thread 'Pyriteschmidt'. It's going to catch on goddamit.

oh man, the Tino reference has been made. Now I am scared........also, it had me searching GRB for some Tino references.

For $35, you get a plate of generic baked beans. For an additional $10, you can pay the bus boy to take the plate away when you're done.


Actually, the thread is pretty good to revisit.

As rest of your info shows, this isn't really a question. Once a weakness is exposed the whole league is on to it in a short while.

Still, from 2011-2018 no one thought to throw him a changeup or breaking ball? Or to bust him inside with fastballs?

Seems like it's just a case of father time taking his toll on Goldy's ability to hit.

Yep, this is unfortunately where I'm landing. I really don't think the "magic blueprint" was suddenly delivered to all of our opponents this offseason - more likely to attribute it to a measure of decline exacerbated by frustration.

He could definitely get Tino'd if things don't change.

You mean our exciting 21-year old outfielder will push him off 1B as Carlson launches a Pujolsian career. Well, Paul seems like a great guy, but this is an acceptable outcome.

Bernie's new column dives into Goldschmidt's troubles. Important stuff:


At this point, I think my main question is why the magic blueprint for stifling Paul Goldschmidt all of a sudden became available to every pitcher in the league this year.
.

yes. Same sort of thing - they onto the weakness -probably partially age-induced, and he's going to get a steady diet of breaking balls.

Time for the roids.

I'd settle for hemorrhoids at this point. They worked for George Brett.
