True, I guess, to a point.
If you strictly define hustle as "running as fast and hard as you can". Sure, if you narrowly pigeonhole the concept into that framework they are seperate ideas.
However, I appreicate a player who works his tail off and gives his all to it's full extent (doesn't mean I want a team full of them, or that energy might need to be used wisely to avoid causing more harm than good).
I find people who are supreemly tallented but only use 2/3rds of that tallent and coast the rest of the way distastefull. (which, by the way, in no shape, form or fashion does that comment have anything to do with our favorite left-fielder from Texas).
