Exactly – you have to look at the total. So if Utley gives you 3 in half a season, and his fillins give you even 1 while he’s out, that’s 4 total, and that’s very tough to beat.

I meant the 3 wins is more than any other current option will give you over a full season.
Less than 1 1/2, actually, but agree that more scoring would be more interesting, even if they lose as much.
I’m fine with MY leading off. As for clogging the bases, that would only happen in about 30% of the times that Revere is on base.
@lilwengs, I agree, it’s way too early to give up on Revere. A couple of points though: he is already pretty disciplined; he doesn’t walk much because pitchers have little incentive to throw him a strike, since […]

Not 0. Less than virtually every hitter in baseball, but not even close to 0.
Kk was dumb, but he was safe. Also, we don’t know that Hernandez still hits a double if there’s a runner on 2nd.
He’s now the 2nd best hitter on the team so far this year, and the best one is on the DL. I can certainly see the 2 or 3 spot.
Hunger schmunger. It’s called talent.
Lately Orr has actually been tearing it up. Last 10 games at LV:
MMartinez: .212/.316/.273 (.589 OPS)
Darin Ruf: .195/.283/.268 (.551 OPS)
Pete Orr: .325/.341/.675 (1.016 OPS)
J. Fields: .324/.366/.459 (.825 OPS)
So, now I suppose D.Young will likely DH with Mayberry in right.
He’s hitting better than Mike Olt, and about as well as Billy Hamilton, so he’s got that going for him. :-)
Other than being small, I don’t think Rever and MiniMart have much in common.
1 position vs. many
speedy vs. not so much
can hit some vs. can’t hit at all
Revere is hitting .370/.420/.435 in May (51 plate […]
Possibly. None of us know what he felt, either now or previously, but another explanation may be that, unlike previous aches and pains, this one hurt too much for him to think he could play through it and be effective.
@Mike, other than opportunity (and maybe run support), I don’t see the big difference:
Schilling.. 19 G, 11-2, 2.23 ERA, .968 WHIP, 0.8 HR/9
Halladay….. 5 G, 3-2, 2.37 ERA, .737 WHIP, 0.7 HR/9
Kenny — congrats on your first article.
Also, most complete game shutouts in MLB since the start of 2009:

He’s caught most of the balls hit at him, and even made the occasional web gem. But his range is limited, so overall, he’s been below average.
That’s old news G7. They already ran away from the pack in April!
@Keith, you had inadvertently said nearly 1 popup every 5 at bats, so I’m glad you corrected that.
Last year was Rollins’ worst year in the % of balls in the air that have been popups, and for his career he has […]
You’re right about the division — highest WAR among MLB shortstops in 2012, according to Fangraphs:
5.0 – Ian Desmond
4.8 – Jimmy Rollins
4.2 – Jose Reyes
3.9 – Elvis Andrus
and so on…
And this […]
