    I think that's just for switch hitters. The record is 67 in 1931.

    It's the doubles record by a switch hitter that he's about to break, I think.

    Ah, that's what it was. Thanks. Impressive regardless.

    He did it last night! He broke the season doubles record by a switch hitter and he's only five doubles away from beating the all time (I think) record of 60 doubles in one season which was set back in 1936. That would be SO cool!

    And dang, that last half inning went by faster than I could type out that paragraph, LMAO

    Agreed. I just never liked him when WE faced him. It just doesn't feel right for him to not retire as a Brave though. Glavine & Maddux too.

    Re: 9-30-09 Reds vs Cards

    Here's the article from orioles.com about the switch hitter doubles record

    Sorry it took me so long to find it. My internet decided to be a tool. :

    Relavent part where I got the 1936 comment:

    The 31-year-old has an outside chance to be the first big league player in more than 70 years to hit 60 doubles. The last player -- Charlie Gehringer in 1936 -- also set the all-time record (60) for second baseman, giving Roberts another target.

    I agree. He may not retire as a Brave but I hope he'll go into the HOF as a Brave. That's where he had the most success and where I think his heart still is regarding his whole career.

    CRUD! Soooooo close. Sure fire dinger from Nix, just foul. 1 for his last 18 (1 hit was HR).

    What's the story w/ Gomes?!?


    Watching Nix is kinda painful after watching Bruce make a fantastic AB.

    Very impressed with Bruce's approach since returning. Very impressed.

    I was wondering the exact same thing. 2 games he's appeared in out of the last 7. Not starting...just appearing. I'm thinking illness or something of the sort.
