Bo, I certainly would love to see him starring on our football team on Saturdays, but he just has to take this shot. I've seen a few guys who were well regarded in both sports try to pursue both and end up with football injuries that ended their prospects in baseball. Hood is a big time prospect in both, and seems to be a quality young man, so I want him to make the best life decision for himself. Besides, it looks like he can put $500k or so in the bank and get paid for playing a game, even if it means the bus leagues while he is discovering if he is good enough. If he's not, who knows, he may have grown to linebacker size when he wants to try football.
