    It's obvious he's worked with Molitor, but some of that just can't be taught. Still, hope Santana (and his speed) pays attention.

    It'd be nice if Hicks could throw it more than 50 feet without bouncing it.

    Dozier is a ball player... He plays the game and those are the type of players I come to watch play.

    The Delmon Young's of the world are not worth the price of admission. I like players like Dozier... Fuld... Yes... Denny Hocking... Players who play every inch of the game.

    I'd be more impressed if he were allowed to run the bases without that silly helmet on. He'd be like Guy Lafleur out there.
