He's got flare, but you can tell he: genuinely cares about the team, is working on his plate discipline, and always tries to play good baseball. I would take him over just about any shortstop in the game. And he's started out about the same as he did last year. Tons of groundouts, and then he'll start getting hot and taking some shots (he was thiiiiis close to a homer a day or two ago).
The New Hair ~ Lol, the first time I saw the do, I remember he took his batting helmet off after getting kind of dusty (somehow) at first. I thought it was dust on top of his head!!! haha. Swear to God. Then I noticed after a while, "Hey....it's still there...........Sweet!!"
Yunel vs The Reds ~ That point to the catcher and then to the mound was brilliant. Everybody on both teams new it, and immediately came to see what was up. Good times.
The bat spin ~ I love watching him spin the bat when he's coming up to the plate. He knows all kinds of tricks with balls and bats, and I wish we could get some more shots of Yunel being Yunel. Maybe a camera guy posts here or something. And the bat flop never gets old, though. Look out, ump!
Anyways, I love watching the guy play, and don't take it for granted that he's playing for my favorite team. Let's see YUNEL'S CARTEL back at Turner!!!!!!!!
Go Yunel ~ and Go Bravos
