stick? The stick won’t stop. But shop to talk to CJ Cron, to wax poetic about where does all this thunder come from? You will have better luck squeezing blood out of a stone.
“I was hitting with CJ in the off-season and my dad and I (Chris) were talking about hitting like we usually do,” Kevin Krone, younger brother of Rockies first baseman, told The Post. .
“My dad asked CJ what he thought. And in just a few words, CJ said, ‘I really don’t like hitting. I just like to hit.'”
“‘If we all hit the way we said we were going or tried, we’d all be All-Stars.'”
“‘There are many good hitting talkers. Not that good hitters.'”
“He was always blunt but true to me,” Kevin continued. “CJ is a hitter, not a talker. And I admire that about him.”
That hitter is making the case — quietly — to becoming an All-Star. The Rockies’ lone representative at Dodgers Stadium in July might just be the big fish they landed on a minor league deal 15 months ago.
