The one constant through all the years, Ray, has been baseball. America has rolled by like an army of steamrollers. It has been erased like a blackboard, rebuilt and erased again. But baseball has marked the time. -- Terrance Mann (Field of Dreams)
A summer watching a bad Reds' team, is still a pretty good summer.
Tonight Sliding Billy shows just what he can do. Infield single. Steals 2nd, to 3rd on the catcher's throw. scores on a groundout to 2nd.
Hamilton starting to find his groove at the dish. 3 more hits tonight and 9 runs scored in last 4 games.
The most encouraging stat this year for Billy is that his K rate is down to a career low of 15.9%. Limiting Ks will be pivotal for a guy like Billy who can do so much when the ball is put into play.
Simple question without regard to how he would adjust...
But how long do you expect Billy's super-speed to last? At what age does he become just a "fast" runner.
