Aramis Ramirez: Good off speed hitter because he has lots of RBIs


homer

Listening to the White Sox/Cubs game on the Score and Steve Stone (who's a WS broadcaster for those that don't know) said Aramis Ramirez is a good off speed hitter because he has a lot of RBI - meaning he hits the ball the other way a lot.

 

Now, I guess hitting the ball the other way shows you can hit off speed stuff, but does that really have anything to do with how many RBI you have?

"Dustin Pedroia doesn't have the strength or bat speed to hit major-league pitching consistently, and he has no power......He probably has a future as a backup infielder if he can stop rolling over to third base and shortstop." Keith Law, 2006

YES! But don't ask him to provide an explanation. You just don't understand, because you never played! http://forum.brewerfan.net/images/smilies/wink.gif

good point! my buddy works at the score with Stoney and when i met him for the first time i couldn't get a word in edgewise. he told me the brewers bullpen would stink this year - as much as he respects doug melvin - and all i could come back with was that ramirez was lazy. he didn't disagree.

I'm all confused now. Bill Schroeder harps on everything going to the opposite field. I sometimes envision him in the booth being pissed off when Braun jacks a homer to left field.

Me too, but I envision him being pissed because Braun relied on a homer.
