Quintero is no Ausmus behind the plate.Anyone who thinks catchers are totally interchangeable except for the BA are just wrong.Jason Lane hit a 3 run homer and drove in another run with a GB out.Pretty good day, except for the brain fart not replica A Lange & Sohne 404.035 Men's watch throwing to the cutoff guy.Naturally, Biggio played the whole game.His arm is so weak that he is not turning most DPs of the 6-4-3 and the 5-4-3 persuasion unless the runner is very slow.This is not called “errors” but it DOES lead to more runs scored.But to me, the real story is and I feel like the kid with the emperor’s clothing Lance Berkman is not hitting.
He FINALLY made the majors with the Brewers as a relief pitcher AND pinch hitter in 2003 70 AB with 1 double, 7 HR, 6 BB: 13 K, .300 BA, . replica Bedat 334.011.301 Ladie's watch, .614 SLG and .969 OPS.He also pitched in 42 games, 53 IP, went 1 and 1 for a 5.26 ERA, 1.49 WHIP, finished (mopped up) 15 games, gave up 5 HR, 13 BB : 39 K (not bad at ALL) and had a 6.69 K 9 IP.This is called a twofer a pinch hitter and a mopup guy for the price of ONE player.
GREAT idea if it works, and it did.Last year, he wasn't quite as good, still cheap, 32 G, 43 IP with a 3.77 ERA, 1.33 WHIP, replica Bedat 314.010.100 Ladie's watch IP and 5.86K 9 IP (both a little higher.) As a pinch hitter, he appeared in 75G with 63AB, 3 doubles, 1HR, 5BB, 16 K, 3 GIDP for a .270 BA, .324 OBP, .365 SLG (6 fewer homers made ALL the difference) and a 689 OPS.Can we use him in the bigs (we SURE can use him in A)? Well, we actually NEED a lefty (we have John Franco, yecccccccch) or at LEAST, someone who can get lefties out.
