Always a good thing.
However, there has been a weird lack of terrible sportswriting recently...at least that I have seen. I thrilled a little to find that ARod and Jeter used to have sleepovers five days a week
back in the day. That's embarrassing, for everyone, I think. But as far as articles go, I haven't found many HatGuy-level insanities in the first days of Spring Training. So keep those tips coming, if you got 'em.
For now, to help pass the time, here's a snippet of wisdom
from Maury Wills, in re: Juan Pierre. When you read the quote, remember two things: first, remember that Juan Pierre is one of the most prodigious out-makers in all of baseball. He makes tons
of outs. Last year he made 526 outs
! In fact, mostly what he does when he plays baseball is: make outs. And second, remember that the job of a leadoff hitter is to not
make outs. Got it? Remembering those two things? Now read the quote!As for the question of whether Pierre should bat leadoff or behind Rafael Furcal in the No. 2 spot, Wills has an opinion. "I'd be willing to bet [Pierre] bats leadoff," he said. "He's a natural leadoff hitter."
