A helpful suggestion from Dave Cameron: Don’t swing!

I knew the Astros hadn’t drawn many walks, but I didn’t realize the situation was this bad. Here’s Dave’s post on Fangraphs:

"Through seven games, Houston has drawn just six walks while striking out 50 times. The Angels have drawn the second fewest walks, but they have 17. The Astros are in a class by themselves in terms of hacking away."

The Astros "have swung at 33.4 percent of pitches outside the strike (zone), easily leading the league."
