Re: Insane stat
I loved that 10-pitch AB today. Even though he saw his BA drop a good deal today, he still got on base at a .400 clip for the game and worked the Cubs' pitching. He is a catalyst in so many ways, I find it beyond ridiculous that he isn't starting every game at this point.
His steals are just icing on the cake at this point. Even when he isn't stealing, he's distracting opposing pitchers, which is always a good thing. I really think he helps our other hitters in that regard and I think they like swinging the bat with him on base in front of them. In fact, I believe Lopez made a comment saying as much.
And this one belongs to the Reds!!!- Hall of Famer Marty Brennaman
