People give baseball players advice all the time -- and rarely are those people qualified to do so. I've heard of a reporter giving batting tips once (and he was mocked not just by the players, but also fellow reporters who knew it was ridiculous) and fans send on advice all the time.
"Jim [Leyland] had me talk to him," Kaline told Steve Kornacki of MLive.com. "I just told him. 'You can't let it east you up. Have a good game plan, take good swings and let it fall where it does. You can't get mad and you can't let it eat you up.'"
Kaline said he didn't know if he made a difference.
Boesch entered Wednesday's game against the Yankees hitting .300/.368/.420 with one homer, but was just 2 for 20 in the team's previous four games and showing his frustrations on the field.
"You can be mad about making an out, but you don't have to show everybody that," Kaline said.For more baseball news, rumors and analysis, follow @cbssportsmlb on Twitter or subscribe to the RSS feed.
