My one thought on Destin, that was probably masked in HS, was what I'll call the "Pedro Cerrano Issue". Fastball, he hit very very good.... curveball, Jobu has not guided him yet.They are feeding him a steady diet of slop, and he's having a bit of trouble adjusting right now. But we're all of what, 20 some-odd at bats since his bump? This is why he's here, to learn. But if you want to find a weakness right this second, from my perspective, thats it. He's smooth as glass in the outfield.
that's not completely true. even bryce harper isn't perfect and he has some issues/areas he needs to work on until he becomes a great player.i'd guarantee you crabtree can note one or two things hood can work on.
freak that! Hey Crab, get Jake Peavy to demand a trade to the Nats!
Welcome crab, feel free to post all the Destin stuff here you want to. Does he have any good nicknames? Supersticions?
Destin did not have many nicknames, he mostly was called "D-Hood", but that's about it. But as for his superstitions, he had one that i can think of now, but it was a team thing mostly. We found a crab beanie baby in one of our team buses, and it became a good luck charm, and before every game, Destin would kiss the crab and then hit the field. Another ritual he did was that after a playoff win, he would run to left field, and do a Ozzie Smith cartwheel and backflip. It was quite a sight seeing a big guy like him fly through the air, haha.

Yes, Jake Peavy also went to my high school, he actually pitched BP to us one day, and Destin hit 2 HR's off him, first 2 pitches!
Great stuff! Kiss the crab Just as long as he didn't kiss the crab(tree) he's probably okay, right?
Destin Hood CRUSHED a ball to the deepest part of the ball park tonight for an RBI triple. Had it been to the shallow-er part of CF, it would have cleared 405 easy. Base of the wall at about 415. First x-base hit as Monster.
UPDATE: Was just in the clubhouse, and Hood tells me he broke his bat on that blast. So, yeah. Holy crap.
Hood just hit a frozen rope over the left field fence for his first Vermont HR.... and it ties the game at 3-3 in the 6th. And I had my intern on the call!! Booooo! LOL
During a half inning where I had the Boston Gobe/ESPN's Bob Ryan in the booth with me, Destin goes long ball.2-3, 2 RBIs, his 2nd HR of the season here in Vermont. Monsters up 3-0, top 5.
