Williams talked to The Sports Virus about the progress of Giants LF Jarrett Parker: …“It’s about experience and it’s about getting those at bats. Everybody progresses through the minor league systems and they have success and that’s why they’re here. This is a completely different level. I’m sure Bam (Giants hitting coach Hensley Meulens) is working with him on an everyday basis to get him to cut down on (strikeouts), create contact, because if he can create contact more often then the results will be there. We’ve seen that. That’s first and foremost for him… take away the bad swings on bad pitches and get the ball in the strike zone and he’ll be able to do damage…For me it was embarrassing to strike out and I did it quite often. It still was embarrassing to have to turn around and have to take that long walk back to the dugout.”
Come back FRIDAY for a chat with Jorge Ortiz from USA Today
