Me too. Not because Mike Trout isn’t a home run hitter, but because Trout would have to change his approach to do well in the derby. Mark Trumbo‘s swing is tailor made for the derby. Ditto Prince Fielder. Mike Trout is a gap hitter who gets lift. Lots of lift.
Yeah, if they can find a way to actually cut down on something that is literally random chance incarnate, I’ll eat my hat.
I would have said, “New tendon being used as a ligament keeps Michael Kohn on target,” but, this has a better ring to it.
A very cool story from an Angels fan in New Zealand.
Should’ve been an All-Star. Howie Kendrick should be a gol-durn All-Star.
Have you not been paying attention to what Josh Hamilton has done over the last two weeks?
According to Josh, he doesn’t think he’s all the way to where he wants to be yet. During his hitting streak he has a slash line of .342/.435/.605. So, maybe he’s not. But it is nice to be confident in a Josh Hamilton at bat now.
The best part, he did off of a lefty.
