Jayson Stark, quoting a genius MLB "scout" in today’s Rumblings and Grumblings:

One scout who has followed the Orioles says Roberts’ home-run explosion has a simple explanation – that "all those balls he hit for 50 doubles last year, he’s now finding ways to get out of the park."

Are classes at scout school like the easiest or what?  The same scout must posit that Renteria is hitting below his career average because "some of those balls he hit for singles last year, he’s found a way to turn those into routine ground outs". 

Brilliant source, Jayson.
