Re: CBS Sportline: The New Red Machine
I think Chris Chambliss should get a lot of credit. I've been very frustrated in recent years seeing our hitters swinging for the fences and playing HR derby. This team knows how to work a count, get on base and move runners along. And it hasn't cost them the ability to hit the HR. This is much more fun to watch as a fan and the results are there too (setting a team record for runs scored in April). In recent years I'd cringe everytime men were on base as the count would work its way to 2 strikes...I could just see that strike out happening. But this year, I'm confident that they'll get that runner in somehow.
