Vladimir Guerrero is hacking his way to the Hall of Fame with a let-it-fly zone extending from his nose to his toes.

But Angels manager Mike Scioscia said he sees "some alarming trends" among the organization's young players when it comes to a lack of plate discipline and "it has been addressed … organization-wide" with evaluations over the past three years leading to a greater emphasis on working counts, taking pitches and pitch recognition.
. . . that doesn't sound right. . .
It's not necessarily just drawing walks. It's getting into hitter's counts," Scioscia said. "There's a lot of things we look at. Yesterday's game (Monday against the Rockies) we had 16 hitting counts and that's terrific. The result of that is going to be drawing some walks.
