These 9 big leaguers had some trouble swinging the bat this year

When your helmet goes farther than the ball, you know you're in trouble.

Adam Eaton, that swing cray.


Relief pitchers hitting is the best, particularly when they have beards like Joba Chamberlain.


Nori Aoki with the ole' swinging face-plant.

Another Aoki feels his pain.

Pablo Sandoval was just a tad late on this Charlie Morton fastball.

Good effort, Elvis Andrus.
