My favorite Halos fan went on a rant today over email:
I don’t know whether you have noticed, but the Angels have given 224 at bats in 2010 to a player who has no positives. NONE.
He is batting .147, slugging .210 and has an on-base % of .176. He has walked 6 times and struck out 70 times. He also is no threat to EVER win a Gold Glove. He has ONE stolen base (you can’t steal first base, and he’s not a base stealer anyway).
Is this unprecedented in the history of baseball? Probably not, because baseball has a long history.
If you haven’t figured it out, he’s talking about Brandon Wood. I checked his game log on B-R and wow… He’s getting his playing time for sure. My buddy can rest assured that Wood is improving. He’s got three hits in September (he only got one in August). <—- Sarcasm
