Syam,I can’t go along with your notion that Ike is the one who needs a “kick in the butt” he is trying as hard as we can hope to fix what is wrong, this is not something he brought on himself or made happen by lack of interest or trying in the game and how well he plays it. In fact the opposite is true with Ike working long after everyone has hit the showers staying in in the cage trying to figure it all out. If anyone is to blame it is all the well meaning people who are filling his head with what he needs to do to get better “do this” and ”try that” is becoming more of a negative than a positive in helping him. The problem is following him onto the field and now he is making defense errors we never saw from Ike before he has lost focus. Fortunately he has the full support of the team and management everyone sees how hard Ike is working and how much he wants to improve. DWright has been terrific talking to Ike building his spirits and being there for him as has many of other Ike's teammates, but David has been outstanding. I know that Alderson is in no hurry to pull the plug on Ike he wants to give him as much time as possible before making any moves all of that is what keep up confidence and attitude. Ike is not looking at every at bat these days with respect to the results but rather having good at-bats which if you are paying attention has been a little better. The boys come home tonight and the next few days will be very important for Ike as he continues top figure things out. I only hope and ask the fans to be kind to him at Citi hold off on your boos support him as much as possible remember what he meant and continues to mean to this team and help him work it out with your support. I want Ike to cut back on trying all the things that people keeping filling in his ear it is at the point where the kid no longer knows where he was before it all started to unravel he should work only with Hudgens and Geren and perhaps Goodwin at first, I have suggested Ike continue looking at the old video when he snapped out of his slump last year and follow that look at everything from the time he steps into the on deck circle to when he returns to the dugout what was he doing then and then do that again now. I will have much more on Ike over the next few days with him being here at home where in can keep better track on him. Let’s stop focusing on the results and just start working on having good at-bats. For me, I thought his at-bats were a little bit better the last few days.
