  • I wish everyone played like Hunter Pence

    Every ball he hits - whether it be a swinging bunt or a HR in the upper deck, he hustles. Too bad everyone doesn't play like this.

    There is such a thing as "fake hustle", you know. Some people do it just to look good.

        so, what does this mean, we should all worship the player that admires every long fly ball they hit? We should respect every player walks out everything? Every generation has these loafers - yes, but it seems there are more now. Personally they ruin the game.

          If you ask me I actually think more guys hustle now than they did 10-12 years ago.

            I strongly disagree with this statement. However, I think players today work harder off the field than they used to.

              It doesn't accomplish anything to speed around the bases after hitting a home run except garner praise from observers.

              When Heyward hit an extra-inning home run earlier this year, he had a brisk jog around the bases and Chip Caray said "Look at Heyward sprint around the bases!" Heyward was probably excited, sure, and it was a good pace, but ultimately, it doesn't matter he if milks it. And no one wants to walk around the bases.

                That's not what I'm talking about. I'm referring to Hunter Pence, who when he hits a ball that could or could not be a home run he hustles and gets the most out of it when it's not a home run. As opposed to a number of players who love to watch their long fly balls (seen a few this season where it was NOT a HR)

                  Well, you know what? That's the hitter's problem. If they think it's gone and it's not, then they play the fool. Maybe they learn a lesson from it, maybe not.

                      No problem. Glad we could understand each other.

                        And, some who hustle just don't show it.

                          did you see the hit? It was certainly no "fake hustle" but a line drive that just cleared the wall. It could have been just as well off the wall that's why he ran hard. He didn't knew it was gone.

                          BTW his swing looks really ugly

                              I agree. Good player, ugliest swing in baseball.
