Hicks tipping pitches?

Post by MinorLeagueGuy »

Interesting. I know there's been chatter of hand position with him, and Reyes, pre-pitch.

No matter how many you buy, Trevor Plouffe is not going to show up naked at your door, homie. :P

I like how he mentions not being interested so much in the knob shot glasses, because his body is a "temple". Then he says, today he's drinking beer out of his mug.

I am glad it looks like Hicks made the adjustment. Funny how this guy picked up on it in a Spring Training game but no one else seemed to catch on.

And it makes me wonder about comments that Horton has made about Reyes also making an adjustment regarding hand placement. He mentioned Alex's had to do arm-drop after he breaks his hands, and how its enabled him to release the ball differently. Both of our guys made the same adjustment, in the same spring setting, but for different reasons? Somethings fishy. But all that matters are results. SO TALLY-HO!

How come the CARDINALS never noticed what Plouffe noticed during one spring at bat? Lordy.

Don't hate Joey Baloney.
