I figured it would look something like that. Todd has won some games for the cubs and as a fan that means something to me. Maybe he isn't the best to put out there everyday but he has his place, maybe just as a sub and pinch hitter. I just don't want to see him dragged through the mud here. It's not like anyone expects him to be great right? He just seems to fit along with the Cubs mediocrity. If I see him succeed in a few potential winning situations and watch him suck normally, that's better than he average Cub, the way I see it. And that makes me happy. So really my view on Hollandsworth is apart from my standard view on players, due to my love for the Cubbies. I can say I am happy that my heart and head haven't gone totally to stone as the discipline needed to be successful in fantasy baseball has been instilled in me. Being subjective and blinded by pure enjoyment of a team is part of baseball as far as I am concerned.
whoa. where did that come from?
Ok, back to stats. this is an interesting one: Throughout his career Hollandsworth has only once earned 100 hits or more in one season for one team and that was in his first full season, with the Dodgers in 1996. Wierd.
