That's an amazing statement."

    Three grounders for Leake. Love to see that.

    So Stubbs is definitely in the running. My vote, though, probably goes to Brendan Ryan. He has a .544 OPS in 440 PAs, though it should be noted he plays in Safeco and at shortstop, so his numbers are at a suppressed position and in a suppressed park.
    Just from memory, I plugged in 450 PAs National League in Fangraphs. If I recall correctly, Stubbs was last in SLG, OBP, wOBA, and BA. He was next to last in hits, although McCann had one fewer hit and had about 40 fewer PAs.

    I probably didn't pick up Brendan Ryan because I used 450 PAs. So there are issues as to which players are included in the sample. Again, this is just from memory, I didn't go back to look again. I used 450 PAs because I was looking for full time starting players for the whole season.

    But at this point, if Drew does ok in the playoffs, all is well. He does play a good CF in my opinion.

    Rolen with a hit that Barney couldn't handle. Gold glove indeed.

    Votto making up for lost RBI time.

    That inning, the Reds essentially had their pitcher leading off the inning and their leadoff man batting second.

    Seven grounders and a strikeout for Leake one time through the order. Yes please.
