    What about Tom Seaver. IIRC from my youth, he was a really good hitting pitcher as well.

    Arroyo has been pretty solid at the plate this year. He has really surprised me. Even if he doesn't get a hit he seems to get some good wood on the ball a lot of the time.

    It's too early to tell, but Kyle Lohse looks like a pretty good athlete, which sometimes translates to being a good hitter (for a pitcher).


    As I said before, Joe Nuxhall has to be considered.

    Tom Seaver is another excellent choice.

    Bucky Walters was a very good hitter. Of course, he started his major-league career as a 3B/2B.

    Maloney used to say that his 100K bonus to sign was 75k for his arm 25k for his bat (IIRC)

    When he first came up, Chris Hammond was a pretty good hitter...and Jeff Russell was pretty good, also.
    ...the 2-2 to Woodsen and here it comes...and it is swung on and missed! And Tom Browning has pitched a perfect game! Twenty-seven outs in a row, and he is being mobbed by his teammates, just to the thirdbase side of the mound.

    I just went fishing and Hod Eller batted .280 in 1919, an aberation, but he even had 3 doubles, 3 triples and 1 homer. All the other years were on the Interstate (even though the Interstate didn't exist then in reality).
