I’m so relieved!

Five swings.

That’s all it took for Greg Walker to take a deep sigh of relief and realize that the enigma looked to be back to an All-Star.

No holes. No mechanical flaws. No signs of a player who was carrying the weight of the South Side on his shoulders.

… ”But to be honest, it took the first five swings in the cage to show me that he had passed the eye test. Mechanically, this is the Alex Rios I saw on tape when he was in Toronto.”

… ”There were some that felt we needed to change his mechanics,” Walker said. ”I wasn’t in that camp. I don’t think he needs a change mechanically. We tried to attack the problems that developed late last season, but when that didn’t work, we decided, ‘Well, let’s just give him some time off.’ My hope was that the time away would be what he needed, and the two or three things he developed would disappear.”
