By The Baseball Beginnings Guy

Blake Swihart is hitting here. Those first two swings right-handed? That’s what I mean when I say a guy is a gunshot guy. I once heard somebody subtly dismiss me for liking guys who can make the good sound off a wood bat. That guy is an idiot. Then when you get to about the 30 second mark, you get a nice series of gunshots. I can already hear the guy saying behind my back, “well, if you like guys who can make hard contact…” What would you like me to like? Slap hitters who can’t run, guys who can’t throw, guys with PR and mock drafts heroes? You do your little mock, try not to get fired again, and I’ll pick the ballplayers, junior. Swihart, I take him everyday.
