The only option left

From Rocket Bill's notes on the regional Pravda website:

The Nationals decided not to wait until they return to Washington, D.C., to work with shortstop Cristian Guzman, who is in a 5-for-49 slump. At around 1:30 on Saturday afternoon, manager Frank Robinson was spotted giving the switch-hitting Guzman advice near the batting cage at Busch Stadium. Robinson had Guzman work strictly from the left side of the plate. Robinson has noticed that Guzman has too much body movement, which is causing him to hit too many weak ground balls. Robinson instructed Guzman to keep the top half of his body back and just use his hands. "It's starting to come. On Friday, I liked his first at-bat [when Guzman singled]. After that, it kind of got away from him a little bit," Robinson said. "We are trying to get to the point where it becomes natural to him, and he doesn't have to think about it. I think he will be all right."

As I write this (4:30 Sunday afternoon), Guzman is 0-for-3 with three strikeouts in today's game, so there's our progress, eh?

Ladson also noted that Robinson's been devoting some one-on-ones to Tyrell "Big Slugger" Godwin and Brian "Vulnerable to the Inside Pitch" Schneider.
