Notched his 15th RBI today, but should've had more.  He had runners on 1st and 3rd in the 8th and absolutely scorched a line drive the other way ... the 2B made this amazing diving play for the double play.  Got the run in, but still. 

I've watched the last few games and while he only has a couple hits to show for, he has absolutely smoked some pitches.

From Mike Newman's prospect chat at fangraphs yesterday.

[Comment From Earl SweatshirtEarl Sweatshirt: ]
Is it possible Middlebrooks Hood suffered due to early scouting reports? He was a football guy and never played baseball full time until he was a pro. His progression at every level seems to suggest he's just learning how to translate his raw tools into becoming a baseball player. His approach & contact rates seem to back this up.

5:28  Mike Newman: I do not understand the first sentence, but the rest may be accurate. It does take time to adjust "football muscles" to those needed for success at baseball.

Think this may apply to Hood, too?

thanks - i'm guessing he's made the switch from football to baseball muscles by now.

i don't see him as a 30 homer guy and a .280 20-25 homer corner outfielder is nothing special

There were less than 20 outfielders with a .280+ average and 20+ home runs- if that's his ceiling, he's a solid starter

Every player in your lineup is not going to be a 30 homer guy.

I would drown a small puppy to get .280 and 20 bombs from my corner outfielder

Seriously, how is .280 and 20 bombs not impressive?

Thats pretty damn solid. Especially coming from a Nationals fan ... We've gotten TERRIBLE production from the outfield, and that's nothing to get excited about? Not to mention, he's also got the ability to steal 15-20 bases as well.

I guess we're all just pretending this season doesn't exist and he doesn't need hip surgery? :shrug:

:doh:

:lol:

I got mixed up because people were talking about .280 and 20 bombs from an outfielder, which is similar to the numbers being discussed in the Bourjioijsodijs thread.

I get to see him play on Tuesday for the first time when they come to Richmond.

Excited to see him.
