    Heisey had a chance at that but the fan interferes with his cap.

    Bartman-esque.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    I'm sure Leake's saber peripherals are pretty snoozy too. He and Locke know what they're doing when facing hitters. At least in the 4 games I've seen him pitch. The game is different now, it's no longer strikeouts and only strikeouts = effective pitcher.

    The NL averages this year:

    7.4 K/9
    3.0 BB/9
    3.84 FIP (roughly)

    Locke:

    6.0 K/9
    3.9 BB/9
    3.81 FIP

    No, the fool who interfered but didn't catch the ball but kept Heisey from catching it is Bartman-esque

    No one said strikeouts and only strikeouts matter.

    But his K/BB ratio is a very, very mediocre 1.5. That's not a recipe for success.
