Shawn Green is having a miserable spring … 0-for-13 so far, which qualifies as a slump anytime.
I’ve had a good relationship so far with Green and thought I’d try humor to get him to talk. I approached, and in a serious tone, asked: “Shawn, if I were to enter a pool on your next hit, what date should I choose?’’
He laughed and said, “don’t you mean my first hit?’’
Green then spoke of how his mechanics were off, and later was talking with Carlos Beltran about timing the beginning of his stride. Interesting to watch them work together.
