loco hothead carlos zambrano used to be the player to watch on the cubs
but now that they are paying the tampa bay rays $15 million to babysit their latino bambino,
hustling centerfielder tony campana has taken the crown as Most Exciting.
one reason you root for campana is because he clearly wants to make the team.
hes a weak hitting speedster who came up last year from iowa and could motor if he got on base
but he wasnt getting on base much.
this year hes batted above .300 all year and would have an even better average if he was more patient at the plate (bros only got 7 walks in 85 abs)
regardless, when he gets on base good things happen.
cubs suck yet any time my man tony campana gets on base, half the time it turns into a run.
some of that has to do with 21 year old starlin castro hitting behind him.
they each have 12 stolen bases this year but campana wants it
all the time. on any hit, grounder, or fly ball.
which is why this dive that he made yesterday is just campana being campana
and who doesnt appreciate a little hustle when going from first to third.
stay hungry my friends
