I believe myself, Steve Bovey, as you never know when the bat will fly out of my hands. Watch out infielders and left field!!
A's - Terry Jones, always hits the ball hard and Will Mood, he had four triples against us last year. Bangers - Mick Peskett, always hits the ball. Blues - Kevin Moquin, not in the League this year or Walman. I'm far enough back in left field, but an inviting target. Good Ol' Boys - Steve Corry for pulling to right field and Gilles Roy for hitting up the middle. Just ask Stew!! Guzzlers - Joe Allan, he always stretchs a single into a triple so we outfielders have to hustle. Knights - Gerry Sancartier, the man is unreal. Draughts - I reserve judgement until we face them.
Most feared hitters in the league? I think it's situational. For sheer presence/intimidation I think Gerry Sancartier, Steve Walman, and John Tremblay would top this list. The biggest pain in the ass hitter would be Joe Allan...you never know what he is going to do. You hate to have him lead off an inning late in the game as the tying or go ahead run. The web guy...is a solid hitter...tough to defence...hits the ball hard to all fields...although with his gimpy knee we can probably hold him to a single now. Will Mood, Steve Corry and Steve Tsonos are a few other guys who fall under the presence/intimidation category. If the pitcher makes a mistake with these guys...look out. If there were two outs in the bottom of the 7th...tying or winning run on 2nd...and I needed a hit...I would be happy to have Marv at the plate. He is a great hitter...never tries to do too much...will jack a mistake pitch if it is in his wheelhouse...but usually just hits it where it's pitched...lots of opposite field slaps. Marv's first year with the Knights he lead the team in batting average and never struck out once during the regular season. Scott Parsons will probably be on everyone's list of feared hitters once he makes his tour through the league.
Unfortunately for me, I didn't have the time to play ball this summer. The downside of not playing? Not playing...duh! The tremendous upside? Not having to play 3rd/short while Mr. Walman is at the dish. That is not fun AT ALL! Unquestionably the best hitter in the league in my opinion. He's got scary power, very rarely K's and has wheels unlike any other. In fact, I think that he's the only one in the league who could steal a non-passed ball base from himself lol (if it were physically possible).
