Varitek just hit a bomb for Red Sox....

Postby Rockfan616 » Tue Apr 07, 2009 6:01 pm

Yeah, Tek just hit one that made it's way around the Pesky Pole in right to stay fair. He also knocked James Shields from the ball game after the homer. I know it's only the first game, but he also made pretty solid contact earlier in the game on a couple of line outs and looks to have made some adjustments in his stance from the left side of the plate. I sure hope this is a sign of things to come for him after last years' debacle. :-°

uh, dude you didn't use the proper format. we have guidelines for these type of threads:

[HR hitter] is awesome!!!! He totally crushed a ball to [left/center/right] field! I think that ball is still landing! Is this the year that he is going to [figure it out / come back to a former peak]? I can see him punching out 25-30 home runs this year! Should I drop [boring player who hasn't managed to hit a HR in his first 5 ABs] for him?!?! Please answer; I know the guys in my league are looking at him right now!

Guys, it's a player update. Just because Tek hit a home run doesn't mean I'm going to go out and pick him up right away. Chill out, all I'm doing is mentioning that he hit one and saying that it looks to me like he's made some adjustments in his stance from the left side. That doesn't necessarily mean that everyone should go and get him right away, that's not what was intended here. Sorry if I ruffled some feathers by making mention of a home run!!! ;-7

Better hurry and pick him up, because you'll regret not doing so later when he's sitting on another team's roster in June with an empty .220 batting average...trust me, it's happened to me before...

Hahaha! I saw this thread in the leftovers and I'm so happy we're making an effort to make this the standard template in the early part of the season! :-b
