“I told Rios, I said, ‘Get on base twice in the game and give me two stolen bases. We don’t need 40 home runs from you,'” Guillen said. “We want it, but I’d rather you get on base and steal bases and make this game a little bit better than worry about home runs and changing your game. I might bat him second. I might, just to make sure his game changes a little bit.
“His mechanics were bad, but I cannot put a finger on what he was doing wrong. Everything for him was wrong, even when he hit the ball right. When you’re struggling, and you hit the ball right on the button and you’re out, you dig yourself a hole.”
