    My favorite Soler HR from the minors:

    Just drops the bat head and crushes it over 450 feet.

    I miss the days when Coghlan was terrible.
    I dont care, Votto said of passing his friend and former teammate. Hes in the past. Bye-bye, Jay.

    Like they say on TV, Billy needs to disguise his steal attempts better. When he's going, it's obvious, from the first pitch. Be a bit more selective, Billy.

    Hamilton making rookie mistakes. Hopefully he will learn.

    Billy's right foot is a huge tell for him. He kind of pivots back and forth with it before he takes off. I noticed it in his very first game when I was at GABP, so I'm sure the scouts picked up on it as well.
