I'm confident Gose's offensive number will improve. He's shown throughout his time in the minors that his eye is quite good, and when he debuted he wasn't chasing much outside of the strike zone, his swinging strike% was more than tolerable. The issue is the quality of contact he's making, if he can reintroduce some of the elements that made his 11' swing so powerful, we'll have a beast on our hands. If I recall Mottola changed his hands and widened his stance at the start of 12' and while it slashed his K% dramatically, his power fell off. It'll be a struggle to find a balance, but I trust the guy's athleticism and talent, and I trust this development staff.
