    Was that the easiest looking opposite field HR you've ever seen???

    NAPS is going to be a HUGE PLUS to this ballclub!  I don't miss A-Gon one bit!  Naps has not even begun to roll yet, and I'd take him on my ballclub over A-Gon every day of the year!

    Loving this team!
    your stoned out of your mind.... A-gone is twice the player Naps could ever be. I like Naps a lot, but he is NO adrian Gonzale




    429????   You're projecting :)  If only I were.  Kids.  Can't do it anymore :(

     

    I honestly mean it!!!!!  I would take Naps any day of the week, & I couldln't be happier A-Gon is GONE! 

    Of course A-Gon is the better player by a LONG.......  shot.  Not even close.  But for TEAM "chemistry," & attitude, I take Naps after seeing what I saw out of A-Gon.  I was done with his whining REAL EARLY!  Not completely fair, but it's how I feel....

    Ciriaco is a nice guy to have on the bench.

    Out of curiosity, has anyone here actually faced, for real, a pitcher who threw 90?




    Fortunately, no.  I proved I couldn't catch up with 85!

    Actually, the only level where Iggy has had success with the bat is in A ball

    Once....   About 34 years ago.  I've successfully re-cast it in my mind, to where I struck out, but ripped one down the 1st base line barely foul.  Would have been a home run!!!!

     

    One friend, who never really liked me, claims I actually may have barely knicked a foul tip into the catchers mit with my eyes closed.  He claims my bat may have accidentally grazed the ball as I ducked out of the way????  Whatever!   6 of one, half-dozen of the other   :)




    Thanks for the response.

    My point is that a person really appreciates the definition of 'bat speed' when facing someone in the 90's.  Especially if they're wild. :)  It looks a hell of a lot easier to hit when watching the pitch while in your chair.

    I was watching a college game when a kid was throwing 95-98, depending on which gun you believe.  That was when I learned that it's true that a hitter can't actually see a ball above ~95MPH.  The eye doesn't move steadily, instead it moves in 'steps' and most people's eyes can't make those steps quickly enough to see anything over 95.  Instead it looks like a blur about 8" long.

    One of my favorite things about heading back east in the summer is hitting the batting cages on the Cape with my brothers.  It's always a laugh, now that we're all pushing 50, just trying to catch up to the FAST cage.  Now adays, it takes us a few time through to catch up to the SLOW cage balls..  LOL

    Now I have to factor in 3 ice down days after.....

    Sometimes they'll also make a slight 'humming' noise.  Maybe that's where the term 'hummer' originated.

    We are stranding too many baserunners. I don't think four runs will win this game.

    Except when the Sox are playing them I'm going to root for the Jays because this environment is good for baseball. That place looks like a blast.

    Faced 90 -- whiffed 1-2-3.

    I did, however, blast a double on a pitch clocked at 88 -- down the RF line. I was so late on the pitch it got chalk then bounced in foul territory. I probably could have had a triple out of it because the RF was playing me straightaway (for some strange reason). The hit came on strike one where I started swinging when the pitcher was in his windup (LOL). Luckiest hit I ever got.
