#2 As someone commented in the Sickels thread -- his BABIP is actually laughably low (.203!). His performance this year is occurring with him also seeming to run through some bad luck.
He's got 425 at bats, subtract 28 homers and 120 Ks and you have the ball in play 277 times
He's got 116 hits, subtract the 28 homers he's got 88
88/277 = .318 BABIP on the year
Oh, I'm not saying it's amazing, I'm saying he shouldn't be there long and it's going to get difficult finding time for everyone at 3B.
Couldn't we trade one or two of these guys with some organization that has an abundance of outfielders or whatever?
Always check the math on random comments, I guess ;-)
Sure that's not the iPhone autocorrect talking? (V/B and I/U are right next to each other on the keyboard, after all...)
I read "getting it right" as "winning a World Series" and that it isn't nearly as important to him and his family that the Cubs remain a contender for 10 years.
