Clint Barmes has been trying out a leg kick. Said leg kick has not been working (.167/.231/.250).
"The last couple of days I'm working on going back to keeping it simple and eliminated the leg kick. I gave it a shot. I believed it was something that could help me. The timing was off, and I wasn't able to either pull the trigger on some pitches, or I was either too early or too late to swing. I'm kind of going back to keeping it simple and being able to control the bat, especially hitting second [in the order]."
We are in full agreement that he should knock that crap off.
