Sweet, now you're catching on
See, I'm not exactly that old.
There's just a time and place for everything.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
Just so you all know, I am actually Paul LoDuca, and am saddened by the fact that I was able to generate so little of ANY emotion, and that so many people would rather discuss linguistics than my customy second-half slide.
oh well. i still make 10,000 times more than all of you
i was real big on lo duca coming into the season. i did expect alot more homers though. He is a top 10 catcher for sure and will have an average over 300 when the years over and probably 15 homers. i just traded him and alou for huff, wells and kendell, but you better believe im still missing him
You're missing him? Well he isn't that great........
a common misconception is that if you have a C that is hitting for a good BA, then he's not hurting your team. Which is false. Sure, he's not hurting your BA, but he's hurting R, RBI, HR, and SB by not getting enough. Just because the numbers aren't dropped, it doesn't mean he isn't hurting. If you make all stats "counting stats" you'll see that no one category is any different in terms of receiving production. It's more clear if you look at it like this: your average player right now has 4 HR, 18 R, 18 RBI, 4 SB's, and a 270 BA. Anything below those numbers by a player means he's hurting you in that category. If you removed him, and put in a player with avergae numbers, you'd be better off in that category. So according to those numbers (that's me in my 18 team league - 12 team leagues should have better numbers) Lo Duca hurts your team in every category except BA. To put it in perspective, Ramon Hernandez helps in 1 also, and is even in another. Michael Barrett is the same. So Lo Duca is not top 10, not even close. Even with his .355 BA, which is definately not going to last.
"Jack, will you call me, if you're able?"
"I've got your phone number written, in the back of my Bible."
Lo Duca won't keep hitting. It's only May. Come back in September to brag about him. Jesus.
Izturis won't hit for too long either because his OBP is around .280 for his career.
Now, Beltre's numbers in the past are bad too, but I think he'll continue hitting for the rest of the season because he is playing for a contract next year and we all should know that Adrian cares more about getting paid then playing baseball. NEXT YEAR, that's when he'll go back to hitting .220-10-55 again.
The best lyric ever: "You shouldn't throw stones if you live in a glass house and if you gotta glass jaw you should watch your mouth...'cause I'll break yo face."
