Rapido? No.

I want to see 40 yard dash times. Seriously. Someone line up all the position players, have them run the 40 yard dash, time them, and publish them. Everyone knows how fast an NFL player is, or isn't. Why not in baseball?

Fucking Gooz. How does that dude not score on Kearnsie's single yesterday? I know Tim Tolman ain't the greatest 3rd base coach in the world, but waving him in was the right call. Goozie should'a been safe, but he was out. By a fucking mile. Speedy, he ain't. 111 SB in 1048 games. Or just about one every 10 games. Remind me again why Manny has him batting lead off?

So, tonight we got Johnny Lannan against Jon Smoltez (I might have spelled his name wrong..I'm having a hard time finding anything on this guy. Must not be that good). On paper, it looks like Lannan should dominate Smoeltz..but, as we all know, the Nats ain't hitting nothing these days. Look for Lannan to keep the injins in check (7 IP, 14K, 0BB, 2 Hits), and the offense to finally come around. 8-1, the good guys.

There's also a game taking place at the Verizon Center tonight. I would throw in some hockey stats, but I don't know any. I hear this Ovechkin kid is pretty good. Caps win 87-0.

Wouldn't 30-yard dash times make more sense in baseball? :shrugs:

Na, cause Goozie was halfway to 3rd when he started to run. That's 30 yards from 3rd to home, and 10...

It would be interesting to see some of those numbers

Josh Hamilton = 6.7 second 60 yard dash. That equates to a a 4.48 40, although I am sure the time would be lower by maybe .2 or so.
Hamilton, then 17 years old, possessed exceptional talent. The 6-foot-4, 205-pound Athens High School graduate was labeled a “five-tool” player. Hamilton hit for average, hit for power, had speed (a 6.7-second 60-yard dash), exceptional arm strength and is a quality fielder.
