Yep. We usually sat in the upper deck so the first glimpse of the green grass was walking up the ramps but as a little kid I wasn't tall enough to see over the side walls of the ramps to glimpse the green without jumping up.
Thanks very much. I’m glad to. I didn’t make it to the Braves game as I don’t do the road games so we’re sorry about that. The positive is that I use those days, like tomorrow to visit the minor league complex and let you guys know what I see and learn there. I didn’t see that prospect Langaliers behind the plate, but I think his hit was Carroll’s one that he gave up in Cody’s otherwise clean IP.
As far as Davis, my notes from the AB in the first inning was a little bit of patience as he sat on two down and in pitches consecutively before walking. And then I guess it was a pleasant surprise to see a little opp field single dropped in too. But at the workouts and practice sessions where I’m watching him play defense he looks solid with the glove and not slower because of the additional weight. Turning and throwing with accuracy is in no way an issue. Getting to balls and hops is in no way an issue.
I didn’t see the Sisco tag that you were taking about. Was he showing good D too?
I was at the game today sitting behind home plate. Bailey was hit hard a couple times and better outfield play would have made his day much better. In the second inning he pitched he got into a little trouble but grinded through it. I thought it was a solid outing. He struck one guy out on a nasty change up curveball. I was under the impression that pitch was a work in progress for him, but he froze a batter today with it.
After talking with people it seems like Davis really has turned a corner.
Not only did he alter what size bat he is using, he was able to generate more bat speed with the help of the O’s and the Blast Technology this winter.
Time will tell it it leads to better results and exit velo...
