I think every once in awhile you ought to check back in history about some of the things that have been said…(ain’t that great now that we have computers and everything is saved forever)
Now about Price and Wieters…
Who is making more of an impact on their team?
Price: 5-1 , ERA 2.03, BA: .200, WHIP: 1.07
Tampa Bay 24 - 10 top of the AL East !
Wieters: AB 117, H 33, HR 4, RBI 13, AVE: 286
Strikeouts 1 in every 4 at bats.
Wieters can’t hold Joe Mauer’s cleats.
Baltimore 10 -24 at the bottom of the AL East.
For all you unbelievers, check this out:
Jason Kendall (of the lowly Royals, formerly the even lowlier Pirates)
Ist major league season - 1996 stats
AB 414, H 124, HR 3, RBI 42, AVE: .300
Kendalls lifetime batting average of 7307 at bats is .290 !
That’s 8 points above Wieters’ current average and 2 points above last season’s average. That includes three miserable years of batting averages for Kendall in the .240’s.
Really, if Wieters is as good as all the hype…should Kendall even compare at all???
PRICE for PRESIDENT!! :twisted:
