Jim Margalus on White Sox hitters with 3-0 counts:
You can read more about their 3-0 patterns in that post, but to sum it up in a sentence, “taking all the way” became a calling card of the Ozzie Guillen/Greg Walker offense. Alexei Ramirez turned it into postmodern art, watching the pitch by not watching the pitch. I’m pretty sure he didn’t bother to fasten his batting gloves after going 3-0.
Apparently this has changed already under the Ventura regime. Definitely a good sign.
