    I started the thread a little too early. That may be the best one yet. I mean honestly, those guys just say whatever the heck they feel, regardless of any factual representation. To the point where it is actually comical. Advanced level trolling.

    If he said that, he is more of an idiot than any of us thought. Did he really say it though?

    I enjoy MLB Network. Their highlight shows are really great (with the exception of the hosts interjecting their comments that show they might not know that much about baseball).

    If you enjoy the lighter side of baseball, which I really didn't know I did, I highly recommend "The Best of Intentional Talk" which is on Saturdays at noon. Chris Rose and Kevin Millar are pretty entertaining...you just have to know not to take them too seriously. The Saturday show is a "clip show" from the week.

    We've had Zach bat 2nd about 1/2 the time and about half the time down in the order.

    I love MLB Network. I don't have to agree with everything they say to enjoy watching it. Part of the fun is disagreeing with them on occasion. Most of the guys are pretty knowledgeable, but none of them know everything, just like us here on Redszone. Even Harold Reynolds and Mitch Williams say something insightful once in awhile.

    Harold Reynolds is a younger version of a misinformed Joe Morgan.

    There will always be a disconnect between what someone who played at the highest level sees and what a fan or analyst sees.

    He may not always be articulate, but when he demonstrates plays on their in-studio field he does a very good job explaining why players need to do certain things. Last week, even my wife took notice when he showed why the shortstop was supposed to be standing in a certain place and she, a non-baseball fan stopped her annoyance at me for watching MLB network, and said I never knew that, that was helpful.

    This quote is taken out of context as I saw it. He was alluding to the fact that the way Hamilton runs is so smooth he doesn't look that fast when you are just following him -- they were showing him running to second on his double. And I agree with the statement, when you watched him you don't realize how fast he really is.
