Chavez's hitting problem

Chavez will always be a streaky hitter because of his high leg kick.Remember the leg kick has nothing to do with the power of the swing. Even though Chavez has good bat speed and fine hand-eye coordination, he neutralizes those strengths with the high leg kick.He becomes more of a timing hitter and less of a reactionary hitter.Since his foot is still in the air good fastballs will handcuff him and he becomes off balance to breaking pitches.He needs to get into the power position sooner which will make him see fastballs and breaking pitches better. Why hasn't the A's hitting instructor corrected this problem?What's your take on the A's hitting instructor?He doesn't seem to be a hands-on guy to me.
