Kody Hinze: Blowin' up

Nice little article from the Lexington Herald-Leader on Kody Hinze's breakout season so far.

Hinze, on whether he thought he'd break out:
"No, I didn't think I would. I was just going to try to stay afloat and then it just happened to blow up into something big."

On his Wu-Tang tattoos:
His tats include a stacked I, IV, III (for "I love you") on one bicep, a sexy lady and the word Cream ("cash rules everything around me"). "It's just an old saying," he says of the latter. "I just love tattoos."

Manager Rodney Linares:
"The kid can hit. He will drive the ball. The good thing is that he's starting to recognize breaking balls, and he's doing a good job. I think he's got four or five home runs with two strikes, which is pretty good, and they've been no-doubters. They're home runs anywhere."
