Sheep lie(according to farmers, well that's what the old joke tells us), but numbers sure don't.

Last season, Briggy started his year out with a bang...but fizzled out near the end of what some considered to be a somewhat disappointing season. So what'd Briggy do this offseason? Worked his cajun butt off, got into shape and according to his current K/BB ratio....got some hitters' contacts.

Reid started his 2006 with a monsterous month(358/.411/.537, 9 BB / 17 K, 3/5 SB in 95 ABs). This garnered the Rays Minor League "Hitter of the Month" award.

The question he has to answer is.... Was April a fluke? Was the offseason conditioning the key ingredient that prevented Briggy from having a sucessful season last year? Are all of Briggy's HRs going to come in bunches?

You see my point.

I believe my job of hyping of Briggy has gone as far as it can...make me look like a genius by continuing to produce.
