Seager’s 4 strikeouts joins not so select company
Most of the time when we have written of the exploits of Cory Seager they have always been in a positive matter. Today we will try something different and hope this does not become a trend.
Last night Seager struck out four times, and it was not the first time he has done this. He now joins Dave Anderson, Maury Wills, and Greg Gagne as the only LAD shortstops to have struck out four times in a game twice.

For whatever reason, it looks like Seager is fighting recognizing the outside pitch low and away.
He has been caught looking on this one a few times to start the season.
The last time it happened in yesterday’s game, the ball was on the corner right at the knees.
Seager politely asked the umpire about it. I got the impression Seager felt the ball was low.
