One of my favorite Rockies ever, and not because of his glove, Seth Smith is making a dent in the media with his play in the last two Oakland vs Detroit playoff games. He is hitting .500 (4 for 8) with a center cut, center field HR in today’s meeting that is being called, “Biggest at-bat of the day” by fellow A’s teammate Josh Reddick. He is also being hailed by Brandon Moss, another teammate that had an HR today, as having, “(the) biggest at-bats of the series so far.”
Reddick even went as far as to allude that they might have won game one with Smith in the lineup when he said,
He doesn’t start Game 1, and it kind of makes you wonder what he could’ve done with that start.
It is good to see someone mostly liked on the Rockies team do well. Sadly, the same can’t be said for Barmes who has played tag at short with Mercer. At least one thing is consistent with the Pirates: Hurdle making the call’s from the dugout. Gotta love seeing that!
