If you rember the Atlatnta Braves of the 1990's and early 2000's, you'd agree they were a team built to win the 162 game marathon and did it better than anyone in MLB history.  Yet, they only won one World Series during that time.  In retropsect they were not designed to win in playoffs. Flash forward to 2014, gone are the Dodgers, Angels and Orioles, teams specifically built to win the division.  Remaining are the Royals and Giants, teams seemingly taylored for the urgency of playoff baseball.  On this week's show, Coaches Ron & Jil Wolforth discuss and ponder the topic "What exactly are you 'built' for?"

In the Classroom Segment they examine the "mechanics-a-holic".  They'll discuss the signs of this affliction and see if it fits you or the players with whom you work.
