Not too unpredictably, Glenallen Hill has started to hit enough for Mike Krukow to declare him "hot." He got himself a couple of hits and a dinger in Atlanta, so I figure the Giants think he's God again.

Richard B. said, "Do they think Hill will catch fire at some point because this is the final year of his contract?" I think they think Hill should be a star, and they're waiting for what they consider an inevitable, long hot streak.

That means that in those games against lefthanded starters in which a brain-cramped Dusty Baker decides to bat Glenallen Hill third and Bonds fourth, Bonds will walk four times.
He'll have guys like Glenallen Hill, or maybe even J.T. Snow, batting directly behind him, and I think pitchers would walk him even if he didn't bring a bat to the plate.
This man may well be the worst right fielder in team history; even Kevin Mitchell was a less tentative outfielder, though Hill will take the occasional ill-advised risk, such as the one that led to his devastating broken wrist last May. Hill is an outfielder who desperately needs late-inning defensive replacements.
