This one is for Oregon
Ole Ben did not hit a HR last night, not even a double, only a single in 5 ABs and a walk. And that against Rob Bell of all the pitchers. As a rookie with 277 ABs, he does own a .784 OPS. Not much better than Casey's 752 OPS, but at a big savings. I am going to guess he fares better next year. Btw, a 5 tooler whom almost became a red, Alex Escobar, was called up to Cleveland the other day. Just so we know what we are missing, he was leading the IL in HRs -24 but he only managed 26 BB to go with his 133 Ks.
Btw, can we still complain about BB being traded since the man whom dealt him is gone? On the other hand, it was Lindner whom helped lead the Reds into the Casey contract.
