    The cure for the BP DP...

    ...will someday be Billy Hamilton batting in front of BP I hope. Billy will either steal second and avoid the double play or all those really hard hit ground balls that BP hits that currently are DPs wil find a lot more holes as defenders move to cover Billy. What a great hit and run combo. Billy may score from first on a single.

    Here's to the future!



    (Please avoid the obvious cynical response that of course there won't be DPs because Billy will never get to first).

    Yes. If Billy can get on base, that is.

    On another side of it.....I forget if it was last summer or the summer before but I went back on BP's previous 35 double plays hit into and only 3 were on balls hit to the right side of 2nd.

    BP going oppo with a guy on 1st just about eliminates the DP

    Billy should just bunt every time he comes up to the plate. It would be as a good as a homerun every time with his speed!

    I hope Dusty makes him do pushups every time he hits a pop-up.

    Good point. But I thought the premise of the thread was that there WAS someone on first base.

    Oops... sorry. I didn't see that last part. Thought it was just your sig and skimmed over it.

    In any case, one man's cynicism is another man's realism. Wish I could be more hopeful about Billy H.

    The cure for the BP DP will be BP bunting. OBVIOUSLY!

    Sorry, I needed to chuckle at something after this gut punch of a 16 inning loss to the Cards.
