    Dad, believe it or not, I had heard he was having trouble throwing the ball back to the pitcher. They sent him down to get that worked out. Hard to believe at that level but it seems to be a mental thing with him.

    Chuck Knoblauch, a Yankee 2B got the throwing yips so bad he was sent to the outfield before losing his job. It cost him his career.

    Yep, that was another one. The throw from the catcher to the pitcher and the throw from second to first seem to be so simple......Until you have that little guy on your shoulder, and every time you draw back to throw it he screams: DONT!

    Little blurb on Luc on his ESPN profile today:


    Lucroy went 2-for-5 with a steal and a run scored in the Brewers' win over the Angels Tuesday.

    Spin: Manager Ken Macha said he would give Lucroy the majority of time behind the plate, and Tuesday's performance was a good start. The steal was Lucroy's third attempt in eight games, but speed wasn't much of his profile in the minors. In fact, he only had two steal attempts between 2009 and 2010 combined.

    I watched him play a few games in 2008 when he was in high A. He was noticably faster on the bases. He had a stand up triple one game. His folks said he spent a lot of time off season training at an NFL combine prep camp near his house. I'd like to know how much speed he gained in his 60 yard.

    "He did a good job of getting back in control and throwing some strikes," Lucroy said. "The one thing you can take away from that is the way he bounced back and minimized the damage."

    Look at Johnny-Luc quoting Rob-isms!!!

    Ragin' Cajuns Lucroy-Brewers

    Went to Brewers website - www.brewers.com to see Roster and of course what I have been reading is true, Johnathon is on the roster. Clicked on his name and it came up with all his info plus 2 videos showing him throwing out 2 different players at third base.

    He is very deserving. I could not download videos, haven't mastered that part of computer yet, and I don't have a 5 year to show me how. LMAO

    GEAUX CAJUNS.

    Lucroy is now a member of my fantasy team. He is hitting better than Joe Mauer right now.

    Even on Monday he put a charge into a couple of balls but they were caught at or just before the warning track. Its clear, he's getting more comfortable at the plate and not just looking for singles through the hole.
