Billy Hamilton Newsbeat

You can’t? Somebody should tell Pablo and Shane.
“It’s on my mind all the time,” he said. “Here lately, a bunch of guys have done it. Pablo (Sandoval) did it. Shane Victorino did it. It’s something you can’t do in the middle of the season. You can’t go from being left-hander to facing righty-on-righty. You can’t do it in the middle of the season.
“But it’s something I’ve really been thinking about to do. I’m starting to feel a little more comfortable left-handed. It’s something I’ve got to keep working hard at.”

Man, C. Trent Rosecrans is like Jerry in Parks and Rec.
Audio of the interview mentioned in this article will be posted soon.
Upset by the accurate reports that All-Star catcher Devin Mesoraco was not with the team for Sunday’s game in St. Louis, [Reds manager Bryan] Price went on a five-minute, 34-second expletive-filled tirade in his daily session with reporters… The final tally was 77 uses of the “F” word or a variant and 11 uses of a vulgar term for feces (two bovine, one equine).
The basis of Price’s argument was that he was not fond of sharing information with the media that could be used to his opponent’s advantage.
Ah, f***. I’m just, I’m f****** p****** up a rope in this f****** business. Because everyone has to know everything all the f****** time. That’s not my f****** obligation, it’s not their obligation. You know why f****** Billy Hamilton didn’t f****** play? The other day? Because his f****** finger’s hurt and he couldn’t hit right-handed comfortably. Right? So that’s something that I need to know and no one else needs to know. No one else needs to f****** know it, and all of a sudden it’s out there. His f****** fingers are sore. It doesn’t benefit us. It wasn’t from you, but it doesn’t benefit us one bit to f****** announce to the f****** other teams that we’re playing to bring in lefties when they need to f****** get Billy out. There’s no benefit. So, I’m f******, to be honest with you, I’m f****** sick of this s***. I’m sick of listening to this f****** s***, I’m sick of f****** the f****** second-guessing b*******, you guys can do whatever the f*** you want, but I’ll tell you this — I’m not going to f****** tell you everything about this f****** club, because you f****** guys are going to out there and sniff it out anyway. I don’t f****** like it one f****** bit. I bend over backwards to be honest and direct with you f****** guys and you stick it right up my f****** a** — and the f****** team’s a**. And I’m sick of it. What do you got? If you don’t got anything, get out and I’ll do this f****** interview with Marty. You don’t have anything? Just get out, please.

Jeff Sullivan puts Billy Hamilton under the microscope.
How do you make Billy Hamilton better at the plate? It’s easy to notice the strikeouts being a little high. It’s easy to notice the bunts that didn’t go for hits. But Price touches on something pretty basic. Hamilton is a burner, and he’s not known for his strength. Never will be. Your classic leadoff-hitting burner slaps the ball onto the ground. Hamilton hit too many into the air, and no mathematical gymnastics are required to see that it worked out rather poorly for him.
