I didn't see anyone post this article, maybe someone did or maybe it got lost in the hoopla of this past week. But it is an interesting take from PDoc on some stuff that we don't hear about or see every day. Here's one excerpt.
Also some good stuff on Cabrera, Edmonds, Cordero (yes, Cordero), Cairo and others.Hatcher also relates this story: In September, while the Reds were in Houston, Rolen stayed at the home of Kevin Millar, a good friend and former major leaguer. Millar lives close to Reds right fielder Jay Bruce. One morning, Rolen and Millar picked up Bruce and spent time at a local batting cage, working on Bruce's swing. After the lesson, Bruce hit five homers in his last 38 regular-season at-bats.
