What Is With Hidalgo?

Postby Mark86 » Fri Apr 23, 2004 9:24 pm

I see Richard Hidalgo is benched again. Of course I started him. Is he hurt or something? I have not read anything about it. I do not see a reason for them to bench him. He was hitting around .430. :,-(

Question... When a player is benched who is in your active lineup, does that day count against your games of eligibility? I'm pretty sure it doesn't, though I just discovered it recently.

No it doesn't count.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

It said on yahoo that he was benched either yesterday or the day before also. Gees, I am only going by what I have read. I did not intend it to be a "stupid" question.

I read that and you are right. I was going by what my stat tracker said. Next to his name, it said "bench" a couple of days this week. I guess it could have been a glitch. I thought maybe he could have been injured. I do not know why you felt this was stupid though.

do a little research before you post... that's all.
