Marz’s thoughts: Albert Pujols started off slow this season and I don’t care how great you are, you will not succeed if you aren’t hitting strikes. This lesson was first brought up in Ted Williams’ book "The Science of Hitting". According to Ted’s Chart, the best zone to hit in is the middle of the plate and your average decreases when a pitch is on the corners or too high or too low.
Tim Hudson is off to a 3-0 start and although he wasn’t dominating, he still got the win and it could be that last year he was tipping his pitches and that has been fixed for 2007.
P.S. – Rain, rain go away, little Johnny wants to play!
Cuch’s thoughts: Why do people still run on the field at a baseball or any game for that matter? The cameras do not show you. The crowd mocks you. It proves you are intoxicated and you get thrown in the teams underground slammer! On top of that, someone in Philadelphia runs on the field on a Friday. Now, this dope must spend the entire weekend underground because no one is available to fill out the paperwork necessary to get him out! People are really not that smart sometimes.
P.S. – If i had 1,072 AB’s like Jason Tyner, i project i would have had 27 total homeruns over the course of my career. I assume that because I would have focused more on leading the league in hitting each season.
Marz’s additional thoughts: You are joking thinking you would have left the yard Cuch and i will give you as much "guff" as I want to give you!
