    Nice article about this here:

    Perhaps we have found another pitcher who can hit the likes of Mike Hampton in Arroyo?

    He won't make that mistake again, once is enough. It's like Trott's boneheaded flip to the right field stands with only two outs- he had to deal with it for a bit but learned quickly. I don't think he has made that mistake again...

    Actually yes and considering the fact that I`ve only been a baseball fan for 2 years I think I`m doing prety good.

    I would buy that if the shot had curled around toward Pesky's pole. The toughest part of right field in Fenway is that tight line near the stands: not relatively straight-away toward the bullpen. And no, I don't think I could do better, but then I don't claim to be a major-leaguer. His flub wasn't nearly as humiliating as the one that bouned out off Jose Canseco's coconut, but he still looked pretty gawky doing it--about as awkward as some of the swipes he's been taking in the batter's box. Don't worry, I don't intend to ride his case out of town, but he certainly wouldn't be the first player to have his confidence crushed playing in often un-friendly Fenway. I hope he make the adjustments sooner rather than later.

    I really don't think you'd want to mention his name here. Even when referencing him, I say something like "one certain Boston pitcher from 70 or so years ago".

    Stuff like that, stick with the Bitter Rivalry thread, which you've already posted into. Even there, I'm not too sure about.

    I just posted the question of pitchers hitting homers in back-to-back starts in the Trivia forum. I figure that bunch will be sure to know or know how to find out.
    You've already got a few replies in this thread you'd posted.

    Man, that's all we need. Two airheads playing the outfield corners. Offer all the apologies for him you want. It was ugly. We can only hope that's the last time he does something that foolish in the field.

    I think he forgot where he was in the outfield and misjudged how far he had to go. He probably forgot what he learned playing here last year and misjudged. If he had a few more inched he would have easily made the catch for a spectacular out.
