The Detroit Free Press posted a video yesterday which helps to explain the technology improvements that will give fans the ability to connect to an in-stadium WiFi network to watch replays on their personal devices. That video clearly shows that the end zones are not blue, although no paint has been applied to the field whatsoever. Take a look:
Berry does have outstanding speed, and would make for a terrific pinch runner, but that’s really all he brings to the table. He burst onto the scene last year in late May – performing fabulously while Austin Jackson was injured – but struggled mightily down the stretch. His final batting line wasn’t good, but it also wasn’t completely terrible for a speed guy (.258/.330/.354), but in July, August, and September those numbers fell to .224/.285/.312. After his first hot month, he really didn’t hit a lick, and speed doesn’t play if you can’t reach base.
He’s a 29-year-old left handed shot that is a solid top six forward on pretty much any team in the league. Given the right winger or center on his line, and Filppula could be fairly unstoppable. But with a contract up at the end of this year, any team that may be interested in trading for him may not be willing to sign him come July.
Intriguing match-up at the point guard position with two feisty guards who both love a bit of trash-talk. While Cook is clearly the more outspoken out of the two, don’t expect Appling to be intimidated by the high-energy sophomore guard.
