  1. Two questions: I know he’s a switch hitter now but is Billy naturally a righty or a lefty? Also, should we be concerned about Corcino and Lotzkar? I was hoping that Lotzkar would turn a corner this year with the move to the bullpen but he appears to be sucking it up quite a bit this season.

  2. This is the video link to his 2 homers. Cant get the hyper link to work. You will just have to copy it in to your browser.

  3. That’s what I thought, thanks for the reply. Glad he’s making progress from the left side, now let’s just get that average up.
