I am not a stat guy (sorry). I don't know where I'd even find the facts on this, but my observations of Edwin and Brandon makes me think these guys are not intelligent baseball players...... Brantly just commented on EE swinging at the first pitch of his first at bat (with runners on) which resulted in a pop up . It seems like I see these two do this kind of thing with regularity (not to mention the bone headed defense they seem to display with regularity). You have to think that the coaches talk to these guys about situational hitting..... Does it bounce off?!? I know that if I don't do what my bosses want at my work, I'm going to be out a job soon..... Could this be why we don't have a certain shorstop playing in Cincy anymore???
I hope this doesn't sound like a rant; it's not intended that way. These guy's are two of my favorites and I hope they do well. It's just when I compare them with the intelligence Josh Hamilton seems to play with (and he's in his first year) I am perplexed.
