If he hits into one tonight a Sox player finally will lead the Majors
in at least one category

Doesn't surprise me. Does he have a hit or groundout to LEFT side yet?

Do you mean right side?

He usually grounds out to 3B or SS but once in a while he hits a weak squibber down 1B line that requires the first baseman to wait for the ball to roll down the line and pick it up before he can step on the bag.

We've already got a category leader...Thomas is leading the majors with 6 HBPs.

Yeah I meant the right side. My bad. I was thinking from a defensive standpoint the left. He needs to stop trying to pull it. His poor 2nd half has carried over I think. That's our hitting coach's job to fix him.

Good thing Konerko is so slow, otherwise that might be a tough play. :smile:

Hip dysplasia is a bitch, as any dog will tell you. :cool:
