Headfirst Slides

Apparently Nick Punto still likes to slide headfirst into first base. Unlike many of Punto's harshest critics, I like this trait. Think about it. He might hurt himself. That's the most valuable thing he can do. Even if he slides in head-first, he's still out when he pops up to the second baseman. Moreover, when he slides into first, he can't overrun the bag, turn the wrong way, and get tagged out while he tries to innocently wander back to the base.

    And there is Punto news. I think he was hitting about .100 for Italy in the WBC.
