Adrian Gonzalez says his neck is not to blame for his power outage

Earlier this week Terry Francona said that Adrian Gonzalez’s recent struggles were due to his bad neck.  Gonzalez dismissed that after another bad night last night:

“I’m not hitting because my swing isn’t good right now, not because of my neck”

Not that this absolves his neck. He says that the swing is messed up because the original neck problem — which he says is fine now — caused him to screw with his swing, and he hasn’t gotten it back yet.

In other news, I wonder what percentage of a given fan base cares why someone isn’t hitting as opposed to merely caring that he’s not hitting.
