All of you Hidalgo owners can thank me for his success. I drafted him late and thought I had a steal. He stunk. I dropped him. He's kicking butt now.
Hidalgo, when he was on my team:
75 at-bats, 10 r, 2 hr, 9 rbi, .173/.235/.280
Hidalgo, since I dropped him:
63 at-bats, 13 r, 7 hr, 16 rbi, .286/.366/.651
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'
