Game Hero, 53 - 57

Luke Scott
  • 4 for 4, 1 Walk, 2 R, 2 RBI
  • 1.108 OPS on his season
  • 8th multi-hit game in 12 starts
  • 10 for 19 against Arizona in '06, with 2 doubles a triple and two homers

CatcherBrad had the early edge, but faded late, while Luke kept going and going.

A year and a half later, Luke is an overnight success. I found it funny how Mark Grace kept saying "what a great start" to Scott's career, probably unaware how Luke had made Houston's roster out of spring training in 2005, and then had played his way out of the club's plans by April 24th of that year.

Exiled to Round Rock on May 2, 2005, Luke wouldn't see the 25-man roster again until July 14, 2006, and there were those in the interim who felt he'd let his best chance get away.

That no longer appears to be the case, and the spiritual young man from De Leon Springs, Florida seems to have passed his trial of faith.
