Allen Craig has had trouble getting the ball in the air in 2014

Despite a very good 2013, there were concerns about Allen Craig in 2014 after seeing a power drop last year and ending the regular season injured.

The St. Louis Post-Dispatch ran an article by Derrick Goold over the weekend on Allen Craig's plate approach and how it relates to his drop in power and success with runners in scoring position. It's a good article with interesting quotes from Craig, manager Mike Matheny, and hitting coach John Mabry that shed light on the club's hitting philosophy as a whole as much as Craig's. While the focus on the excellent results when batting with RISP for Craig in particular...
