All Things Bubba

Because how can you not love a baseball player named "Bubba"?

The year that was...

The Elias 2005-2006 Player Rankings came out yesterday. Bubba's not on the list, since he wasn't on the roster by the end of the season. But if you're curious about how he ranked the last two years...he was ranked #119 on the 2003-2004 list, with a score of 7.000. On the 2004-2005 list, he was ranked #108, with a score of 8.310.

And here's FoxSports Hot Zone diagram for Bubba:

I guess Bubba likes 'em high. Kind of odd, because most lefties love the low and inside pitch. Maybe no one pitches him there? Except that, watching him, it seemed like he struck out looking at a lot of low and inside pitches. He used to whale on those. His very first at-bat as a Yankee, he golfed a low and inside pitch into the right field seats.

And finally, "Mr. Faded Glory" takes Bubba's name in vain here :

In the category of nicest smile while sitting on the bench, the winner is..... Bubba Crosby!

Okay, he's just making fun of the zillions of awards they give out at this time of year. But hey, Bubba does have a nice smile.
