Who hits the most "no-doubters"?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby The Jury » Sat Jul 30, 2005 1:46 pm

What about taking a side spin on this topic:

What are the trademark indicators of a homerun?

Bret Boone's bat flip.
Big Papi helicopter.
Sammy hop.
Manny's watching of his own moon shots :-D
Griffey's swagger and bat drop.
Ichiro's hard running to first base.

I disagree on Sheff. He's too great an extra base hitter to hit "no doubters." You definitely know when the Sheff cooks a pitch but you don't really know if it'll be off the wall or out.


That's not disagreeing; you are agreeing with AT on Sheffield there :-?

Dunn watches his, too.

Come to think of it.. a lot of players are getting cocky.

I did pick a poor person to quote, but AT did say that [he's say Sheffield], whereas I wouldn't.

He said that predicated on the same thing you were saying: that you never know if its just going to crush the wall or go over it.

He that he'd say Sheffield. I wouldn't even think of picking Sheffield. Check the first words "I'd say Sheffield but..."

I wouldn't even consider Sheffield with those ropes that he hits.

Of course I'm biased here, but I've always really enjoyed Booney's bat flip.

They had a great promo commercial up here where he's pretty much flipping everything as he finishes with it--my favorite being the "telephone flip" after he's done talking.

:-D

AT would agree on Sheff but...?

I would NOT agree on Sheff, no BUTs needed!

Seriously, grow up.

Bonds is the man when it comes to no doubters. They leave the bat and its game over.
