    Well I'd say Hicks has had a better start this year than last year.
    I couldn't be a player because of bad eyesight, so I decided to be an umpire instead.

    I believe he asked Arcia how to pronounce it, and that's correct.

    Yeah, when people were saying "Hicks will never be better than average, he only has a slim chance of being average at all", it was hard for my eyes not to roll right out of my head.

    Yeah, he was bad. Yeah, it was unfortunate. That doesn't mean his immense talent suddenly disappeared.

    As many hits so far this year as his first 63 plate appearances last year.

    Can not say the same for Brian Dozier, unfortunately. After a blazing start in the first few games of ST, he cooled off considerably, and it has carried over to the regular season.

    7 is 7 for 7 this year on infield ground outs. Tough to do AND he's gotten the infield cycle in two games groudning out to each position.

    Only through 1 and a half games obviously, but he looks comfortable at the plate.

    5 pages already. The game thread crew is out today.
    You can come up with statistics to prove anything. Forty percent of all people know that.

    Yeah, only a couple of games but he looks like a different player. My point is that people shouldn't discount a rookie for one atrocious season.
