  • emerging young hitters

    To me, this is my favorite part of baseball. I enjoy watching hitters get hot, and even more enjoy the young guys. Something about it is very fascinating.

    Here is longoria: 151 ab - 7 hr - 28 rbi - 22 r - 38 h - .464 slg


    More longoria:

    Am I the only one who thinks bowker and longoria have beautiful swings? Although, I think Longoria's is much better.

    Track them second time around the league and see what happens to many of them as video of game swings become available. Then it's interesting to see which hitters make their adjustments and survive the game, third time through.

      I follow Carlos Quinten's career. He made an interesting remark I liked when he was in AAA. He said, "Top prospect is just another label. I still have to produce to get called up."

        I love watching Justin Upton play for my Diamondbacks. He's still got a lot to learn, but he's got all the tools to be a superstar. It's going to be fun to watch him develop.

          I forgot about him. I like him a lot as well. I saw him hit a homer at the futures game.

          Here he is:

            Clement from the Mariners (AAA now) sure has quite the cut. Any of you seen him swing?

              You're killing me.

              What was the result of Longoria's swing above? It's fugly. It looks like he was fooled and popped up the ball to RCF.

              If it was a homer, he was crazy lucky.

              P.S. I just checked the file and the result of the swing was a 2B. As I tell my players, never mistake luck for skill.

                I hope that you were being sarcastic, if not I will be totally shocked.


                Also, this was a homerun to pretty much dead center


                here's this swing in context.

                      Sorry I wasn't clear, I meant in terms of homers. I believe I mentioned mench as well. Remember last year when kinsler had like 12 homers really fast, then hit about 3 the rest of the year? know what I'm talking about? And mench hit like 12 homers in 12 straight days.....then 2 the rest of the year? Or gomes is a good example.
