Then there was Wedge that wanted the M's hitters to be more aggressive. Ackley seemed messed up with his development too.

I've wondered what would have happened if Edgar was the hitting coach when Carp was first up with the M's. Edgar wants the hitters to be quick (and direct) to the ball, so that would have reduced the need for Carp to start his bat as early, and could have let Carp keep a better BB/K ratio.


Perhaps he would have had a stellar contact rate like Mike Zunino. :lol:

Carp was a totally different type of hitter. I'd say that Carp would have had an improved career hitting-wise.

I actually got Ackleys Autograph the day that he signed with the M's. He was at Safeco for some pregame B.P. and a press conference and I cornered him when he came up the aisle during the game. :lol:
