Brooks Conrad is officially forgiven for that grand slam.
Red Raindog (07-02-2014)
Great memory there, FOX.
Rounding third and heading for home...
do they really have to show that Atlanta game video?
The older I get - the better I was
and yes - I hate the Cardinals (Reds fan since 1958)
Again today.... This great Reds defense is not making the big plays....not errors but making those plays at critical.
My thought on hitting is that you try to hit the ball hard somewhere each time to the plate and let the chips fall where they may. Start messing with the process ballpark by ballpark is tail chasing and I'd be really surprised if there is tangible proof that a hitter actually does this.
Can't win with 'em
Can't win without 'em
I have absolutely no doubt that good visiting hitters aim for the right field stands in GABP.
And when they shift on Bruce in this series, shouldn't he try to slap it to the opposite field?Swinging away in other stadiums against the shift may make sense; but what's the upside in Petco where a homer is unlikely?
Obviously the best thing is to have solid line drive hitters who can hit in any stadium. And I don't expect every hitter to re-learn the game. But some adjustments are obvious and should be made.
