FanGraphs Audio: Does Every Swing Change Just Create a Superstar Now?

Episode 741
Over the past few years, a number of players have benefited from a change in swing mechanics or approach. Josh Donaldson and J.D. Martinez most famously. Yonder Alonso and Aaron Altherr more recently. Now that the means exist to recognize adjustments more quickly, is it also possible to anticipate breakout performances before they actually occur? This is the question that managing editor Dave Cameron nearly answers on this edition of the pod.
