The point of this blog is to have a good time and pay attention to the humans behind the numbers on the field. Really, there is only one Cubs player that could serve as our Patron Player here at Two Foulweather Fans and that player is, of course, Koyie Hill.
Koyie Hill doesn’t have the greatest numbers. The tablesaw accident didn’t help him, either. He had a bit of a down year last year. The smart fans complain endlessly whenever he gets playing time.
But any guy who says that he has one more than a dead man after hitting his first (and only) home run of the year and says that even his sister would hit better if she had more at bats and seems to genuinely realize just how lucky he is to be playing is a guy that we’re going to root for and root for hard.
He’s also really good with the pitching staff.
We look forward to another season of you as back-up catcher, Koyie Hill. Represent us well. We’re rooting for you.
