As per Dylan Hernandez in today's LAT (no link--that would ruin the game!), Joe Torre said the following yesterday about a particular Dodger:
"...[He's] in line with everyone else. He's swinging hard. He knows why he's in the lineup. He knows we can count on him. He tries to be that guy. Sometimes he gets a little too big."
About whom is Torre talking?
Just to make things easier, I'll boil this down to bullet points:
- a) In line with everyone else.
- b) Swings hard.
- c) Knows why he's in the lineup.
- d) Tries to be that guy.
- e) Sometimes, gets too big.
And to further help you out if you're playing at home, we'll take the example of 2009 season's Most Impressive Substitute award, Juan Pierre. Pierre would qualify for (a), (b) (relatively speaking, of course), and (d). But Pierre would not qualify for (c) right now, as he's no longer starting; nor has anyone ever accused Pierre of (e). So Pierre would not be the right answer.
