LA Times reiterates team is re-emphasizing plate discipline

http://www.latimes.com/sports/la-sp-angels-fyi4-2009mar04,0,6769707.story

A nice article to read for those of us who may be getting (too) antsy about the lack of plate discipline throughout the organization. Contrary to popular belief, Scoscia notes that about 3 years ago he began to emphasize plate discipline in the minor league teams to help our club distinguish good pitches from bad.

We haven't been in the top half of the league in walks since the Soth's first year although really, who cares with the winning we've had over that same period.

My question would be to mr. rghan as to whether there has been a noticeable increase in younger guys taking walks that we're not aware of?
