Yes, but there has to be more to life than being really, really, really, ridiculously, incredibly, really good hitter.


There is... booze, women, and drugs. ;-D


He already conquered those.

Check out the bat when it strikes the ball. It bends.



It has to be easy to lock into a 70+ year-old BP geezer, tho. No? :-b

Players were asked a couple hours before the hr derby on who they think is the best player in the league. A-Rod was #1 and Hamilton was close behind #2.

For him to just get in the league and for all-star players to already say he's the best in the league is pretty unreal...

Donnie Baseball used to wear one back in the day.

I was a guy who had a tendency to press the bat back against my thumb; I wore a thumb guard to actually push the bat into my fingers. It's an essential element of a proper grip to swing a bat with that relaxed swing we strive for.
