Friday Night Hitters – 2010 College Baseball Week Two

Same drill as yesterday, but today we’ll take a closer look at some interesting hitting lines. Lines from Saturday are finished and should be published later in the day. As for Sunday’s lines…well, we’ll see.

These recaps take a silly amount of time to compile and, while I’m not normally one to complain about spending so much time reading/writing about baseball, I’m thinking it would be best for my own sanity to find a more streamlined approach to this subsection of the site. Of course, I’m a perfectionist who loathes the idea of publishing anything I’m not completely proud of, so it may take me a few days of racking my brain to figure out how I’ll do that exactly, but I’ll get there. It all comes down to this simple question: Is it worth it? In a vacuum, I’d say definitely, but the opportunity cost is considerable. Five hours spent putting one of these together can be spent doing other site related writing, you know? Something to think about, I suppose. As always, I’m open to any and all suggestions.
