Live from Bradenton

"They know how to swing the stick as well as the leather."
-Bob Walk, on Freddy Sanchez and Jack Wilson
I feel like that pretty much sums them up. It also begs the question of how "leatherswinger" didn't emerge as a contemporary of "southpaw" and "bullpen." Our vernacular seems disturbingly thin, all of a sudden.

p.s. Bob Walk will be very surprised if Freddy Sanchez isn't sitting around .310 or .315 by the end of the season. My prospectus subscription ended a couple of days ago, can someone check to see how surprised PECOTA will be if Bob Walk is right about this?

p.p.s. I'm rooting for you, Fred! Sorry if it seems like I'm being cynical!
