I just clipped a different portion of a great post by Bengie Molina for my own blog but he confirms exactly what you say. Great read:

Specifically:

"So that takes the pressure off to produce big numbers because, as I have found out, numbers don't seem to make a difference in the marketplace. The Giants signed other guys to beef up the offense, which means the responsibility isn't squarely on my shoulders anymore. Therefore I'm not pressing as much.

This has translated into being more patient at the plate. I'm swinging at first pitches only 11.8% of time this season, compared to 39.4% in 2009 and 31.1% over my career."

Thanks for checking out my blog. I am a father of three girls and an executive with deep roots in digital media, advertising, and internet development, dating back to my first website launch in 1999. I am passionate about growing internet/digital companies across media, advertising and social. I have been successful finding the perfect blend of art & science in everything I do. Growing up, I was surrounded by two ways of thinking. My mom, an educator passionate about the arts, and my dad, a physicist researching and dissecting almost impossible problems. These complementary perspectives have guided my approach to becoming an expert — whether it was mastering hitting a baseball for the Philadelphia Phillies organization, performing jazz piano across Europe, or my lifelong quest of enjoying the perfect cup of coffee.
