2010-06-23 19:00:00 (link to chat)With regards to Ben L's question, I remember in the '80s the Padres had a smart, cerebral pitcher named Eric Show, and they always believed he overthought on the mound and that's why he was never more successful. (He was nuts, too, so that may have had some impact.) Just a thought.
(dcoonce from bloomington indiana)
It's possible. Of course, people are always looking for reasons to explain things, so maybe that's the convenient narrative that got hung on to explain the results. As for the broader question - I mean, at the end of the day, I'm just a guy that runs numbers. I can tell you what the numbers mean, within a certain bound of uncertainty. I think that kind of information is useful in putting a team together and such, but I have no clue if it's helpful to ballplayers. (Colin Wyers)
2008-05-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Care to entertain why Josh Hamilton's "story" is a feel-good story? Seriously, we shouldn't flaunt a former full-fledged drug addict.
(jlarsen from DRays Bay)
Because he didn't have to come back. He could have just remained an addict and squandered all his abilities on his disease. Anyone who gets their life under control is alright with me. Would you have him wear a scarlet A for Addict on his chest for the rest of his life? Redemption, I think, is something that we should always "flaunt." Look at the healing power of baseball. And just to give you a sense of HOW unusual it is, since I've been thinking about the 1980s, a lot of ballplayers from that period who had drug problems ended up dead - Rod Scurry, Alan Wiggins, Eric Show, Steve Howe - Hamilton's story had a pretty big alternative ending, and it wasn't pretty.
