One game for Josh Hamilton: 5 PA, 4 HR, 1 2b, 18 total bases, 1.000/1.000/3.600
lol what a performance, again thank god for MLB network live look-ins, i get to see so much more shit like this now. also i noticed andrus was on base for each homer, pretty cool.
only thing i see that's really different about yadier this year is how hard he's hitting the ball. 30% LD rate will normalize a bit I'm sure but his K%, BB% and babip are all in line with his career norms. his O-swing% is down 5% too, so along with the added pop it appears he's seeing the ball better as well. as for the stolen bases, yeah he's always been pretty silly. he was pujols' buddy and albert is a notoriously aggressive (and just really good) baserunner that likes to pick up random steals. matheny has the Cardinals running a lot in general this year. kdzjfklsdj
fuck the dbacks
Yeah the double was the one time Elvis didn't get on. He really let Josh down there he could have had a five home run game. I've been really impressed with Elvis' hitting since the first few weeks. Good approach and getting himself close to .400 on base. He'll fall back some but he's actually hitting like a good 2 hitter.
