Question: How many times has Pudge walked in 05?

If your answer was 7, you would be correct. Amazed? I certainly am. Any1 notice a more agressive Pudge at the plate then in the past?

He's never walked much in his career:

2003: 55
2004: 41
1997: 38
1996: 38
1994: 31


He only walked 5 times his rookie year in 1991 in 88 games.

Career .305 hitter too, so it works for me. :-)

Still, three-year totals of 55, 44 and 7? That's quite a dropoff.

Dropoff? Sure, but really not a big shocker or anything. That's all I was pointing out. ;-)

Granted, anyone who's never noticed his walk totals (or lack of walk totals :-b ) might get surprised by how little he walks, but I've watched him his whole career. He swings at the first pitch more than anyone I've ever seen. I'm sure the majority of people who play leagues with OBP% knows he hasn't walked much in his career.

What's strange is that in recent years he's increased his walks and then he gives us this. This year he's doing .286/.295/.464 and that's simply not acceptable for someone who's batting 3rd in the order. He can't get on base and he can't produce runs either- he's hitting .216 with runners in scoring position leaving him with 49 rbi. That's simply pathetic.

By the way he has the lowest OBP of any catcher with at least 200 plate appearences not named John Buck or Humberto Cota.

Previously aggressive + offseason weight loss + naturally diminishing skills = even more aggressive to try to compensate? That would explain the 7 walks by mid-September. It's all downhill from here, Pudgarino. :-b

Tell me about it. Me and moochman have brought up our frustrations over Pudge's performance this year on several occasions over in the Tigers' forum. And above all this, Pudge is running his mouth about the team's losing as if he has no part in it. Well, at least Pudge is hitting .323 with the bases empty. Since he can't play well with others, maybe he'd do better playing with himself.

He's going to have to now that his wife dumped him.

Oh and it should be noted that 2 of those 7 walks were intentional.
