    For every action there is an equal and opposite criticism.

    My guess is Derrick Robinson's numbers would resemble Billy's but the difference is reading pitchers and getting a good jump

    That was the first thing that came to my mind when they read that stat. I have to think the majority are pick-offs.

    It was funny yesterday listening to George Grande go on and on about that toe tap being a tell that Hamilton was going to steal.

    You know how you can tell when Hamilton is going to steal second George? It's pretty easy. It's when he's on first. It's that simple.

I'll take my scorecard and pencil and beer and hot dog and rage at the dips and cheer at the highs, but I'm not ever going to stop loving this game and this team and nobody will ever take that away from me."
