I hope that if nothing else Schmidt's success will reduce the misuse/misreading of that particular stat du jour.
True. I also remember several cafe'ers who will remain nameless (for now) that thought that Schmidt was gonna blow, whether as a result of his off-season surgery or a projected decline in Giant offensive production.
I'd like to have either guy, but if there were a mid-season draft Schmidt would be the 1st pitcher I'd draft.
Bluto: Over? Did you say over? NOTHING is over until WE decide it is! Was it over when the Germans bombed Pearl Harbor? HELL, NO!
