Re: Scoreboard Watching 2013 (Part 3)
A couple weeks ago on one of these threads they were talking about Mike Trout's speed and that his additional 20 lbs have him a step slower.
Watching MLB Network he just hit ball to Yunel Escobar, fielded it cleanly and Trout beat it out fairly easily. I timed it at 3.65 seconds from the RH batters box (Drew Stubbs was typically 3.72-3.75...with an occasional 3.68-3.71)....then on a line drive 2 hopper to the CF near LCF he went 1st to 3rd.
It may be the world's smallest sample size but holy moses that was the best back to back example of speed by 1 player I've seen in a long long time.
