Mostly because I'm not sure a batter, who already is only successful 33-35% of the time with no limitations, can suddenly decide precisely where and how he wants to place a ball.
He's a Republican--he doesn't understand about helping others.

the batter is trying to not hit it to a fielder.
Overall, the O’s went 34-23 under Buck - a 97 win pace over a full season. Given their wOBA, xFIP, and assumed UZR though, they “should” have scored about 229 runs and given up about 258. That would indicate a record of only 25-32 (a 72 win pace).
I would bet that a Major League hitter can fairly easily direct the ball to the left or right side of second base. I doubt they can do it while hitting the ball especially hard which makes it a useless skill in terms of getting a hit.
