He's one run scored away from 1800, he's eight doubles from Napoleon Lajoie, and he's 23 total bases from 4600.
Of course, he's 34 hits from 3000, and in the absence of a true leadoff hitter, I guess he'll do.
clack and SeoulStro and bwhite all might be seen as having lobbied for a "team" Game Hero today as each commented in their own fashion that Sunday's victory was the crispest of the season, with solid contributions in all phases of the game
JD and Brownie went with Wandy of course, and while we remain a cautious supporter of the erstwhile Sr. Cabreja, giving somebody a Game Hero award (or whatever JD and Brownie call it) just because they need it kind of smacks of StrosDux' error, of putting the cart before the horse.
I thought long and hard about "the bullpen" in general, as White-Lidge-Qualls-Wheeler were one Orlando Hudson home run from being utterly fantastic.
But I'd rather give it to one guy than four, and no-one else had four total bases plus a stolen base plus a walk. So Bidge it is, even though it's a lot easier these days to talk about his career than his season.
