Glorifying Brad Ausmus....


This Sports' Illustrated article provides a glowing picture of Brad Ausmus' unquantifiable catching skills. I'm an Ausmus fan, but this article is almost embarrassing in the way it places him on such a high pedestal. Although the article is triggered by Ausmus' work with the Dodgers' playoff team, the numerous quotes from Astros' players makes the article worth reading. Ausmus is hitting .293 this year. When asked to explain why he is hitting so much better this season, the Ivy League educated Ausmus replies, "Small Sample Size."
