For many hitters, thinking middle helps them hit better.  This doesn’t mean that you have to hit everything up the middle, but basically by having this approach, this allows you to hit more pitches up the middle of the field instead of pulling off of them.  The best hitters can think middle and react in.  For some, thinking middle will cause them to be middle-opposite field hitters which may be better for them than trying to pull the ball if they aren’t good pull hitters.  For many hitters, thinking middle is just a station they use while hitting to get their swing right before they start trying to launch balls.
