    Parmelee just has too much trouble reacting to fastballs to ever hit much at the ML level, IMO. That's the bugaboo that eventually catches up to most players as they move up the amatuer and then professional levels, and it's generally not fixable.

    I guess there is something to be said for giving up SOLO home runs.

    I used to cheat in fastball situations. It made me look like an idiot when I got hit with a change-up.

    You're going to say "yes dear," and go putter in the garden. Just like the rest of us would.

    Driver, then putter, would be my advice.

    If I know what's good for me. Except it always evolves into a huge project. I've put in a paver patio, a brick sidewalk, and a limestone wall in the last 2 weeks.

    Probably true, yet opposite of the view expressed by apocryphal letter home from a minor leaguer: "I'll be home soon, Mom. They've started throwing curveballs."

    Probably typical. Don't most players hate being made to look like an idiot against a fastball?

    My Dad started me hitting when I was 4, and he had a mean knuckler. I had a swing at everything approach, so by the time I got to high school, I could literally hit anything. He wanted to kill me when I decided to play football.

    So I take it from miscellaneous twitter responses that there must be people complaining about the TC Bear statue???

    My only complaint would be that any Minnesota Bear should have a can of Hamm's in his hand.
