I just wish I had started him today (first day I had that option). I will be starting him tomorrow.

Eh. I got him for nothing off the wire. I'll ride him as long as he's hot. As long as you don't have to drop somebody of value, I don't see what the problem is with picking him up and riding his hot streak. What do you have to lose with this? What's the point of arguing against picking him up, at least short term?

Obviously a lot of guys still don't hit the HR but that was not a HR off a good pitch or anything, it was a spring training job.

Jeez, what's Kouz got to do to prove his power? Would an opposite field HR or a 438 foot bomb (third furthest in Petco ever) convince you otherwise?


Like I said, not anything negative about him but its the simple truth, that pitch was gift wrapped down the middle and he gave it a ride. You can come up with some dump conspiracy theory about me not liking your player but in reality its the simple truth.


Uhh, i'd imagine most homeruns are hit off pitcher mistakes, i.e. pitches right down the middle, hangers, etc. Well Vlad may be an exception to this. Good hitters hit pitching mistakes out of the park. Are we going to point this out for every homerun?

Good hitters hit good pitches out of the park as well. Sorry for giving someone who was just tracking it on gameday a play by play, I'll never try to help inform anyone what happened in a game again.

You didn't just inform, you put negatve spin on a fairly common situation. So thanks, I wouldn't mind anymore Kouzmanoff game by game from you. That'd be like hearing Ann Coulter give play by play during a democratic debate.

Even if gift wrapped, he still hit one out. It's certainly encouraging to see him come around after a horrible start. I think he'll be decent going forward.

I wouldn't care if they put the ball on a tee, dressed it up with a side of corn, turkey and some gravy and said "enjoy". As long as he keeps baking those sweet potato pies, consider me a hungry patron of the Kouz Kafe.

Okay, well in Petco, good hitters often don't hit mistake pitches out of the park. The fact that Kouzmanoff did it on the heels of two other homeruns -- one a no doubter and the other an opposite field blast -- lends credence to the fact that he is a power hitter.

Grabbed him today. My 3B "platoon" now features Glaus, Rolen, and Kouz.

One of them's got to pan out, right? :-o
