Didn't he get over 50% of those numbers in the first month or so?

Tell me about it! After he was leading the league in homeruns, at the end of the first week of the season, I thought he was finally going to be the 30-30 man that he was predicted to be.

He teases every year. I'm not holding my breath that he finally decides to put it all together. He can be a headache for someone else's team next year.

I remember seeing posts that said something like:

"Should I trade Halladay for Cruz? He's the #1 player on Yahoo!

K thanks bye!"

Absolutely hilarious. :-D

Did you make sure that they weren't in your league before you told them no?

So if Matheny had zero errors in 823 chances, how many would he have in 970?

How does a catcher get PO? Pop-ups, plays at the plate, I doubt there are 5 of those per game. Do dropped third strikes, tag outs count as PO? I'd like to see the breakout...

Every strikeout made by a pitcher is a PO for a catcher.
