"There is no one way to hit. When everyone says he takes too many pitches or he swings at the first pitch too much -- the way I hit worked out for me my whole career. You go through a bad week and all of a sudden you need to swing at the first pitch. Those are the people that get caught up in things and don't know the game. This isn't a one-week season. When you try to change things after one week, it's one of those things that cause more problems."
-- Zimmerman
