I love Tom Hamilton, part of it is his brutal honesty. I remember last season when Tom really began letting Lonnie Chisenhall have it. He wasn't alone, at times it looked like the MLB might be a little overwhelming for the former 1st round pick. That's why this year feels great!
Lonnie Chisenhall came into the 2014 season with some purpose. And now with his batting average approaching the coveted .400 mark this deep into the season, and a new found talent for hitting lefties Lonnie has been dubbed "Lonnie Baseball."
Now if he could only play defense he would be the "Goodest Guy" ever...
But when you are hitting like Lonnie is, who really cares? All I know is that he has been scaring the tar out of pitchers.
Unfortunately, while he has been a standout, he has been overlooked on the All-Star Ballot. So you may want to do your part and go give him a write in vote HERE. I did, and since the Padres did their part in making me laugh I may have went a bit overboard...
So lets get this kid in the All-Star game!
