Random thoughts on baseball

This was originally posted on May 3, 2006 over on my MySpace blog.


Here’s my random thoughts on the Major Leagues as of the afternoon of May 3. I will write more thoughts later, when I’ve got the time.

Not a surprise: Albert Pujols leads the Majors in RBIs, with 32. In fact, Pujols is in the top 5 in a ton of categories, including (but not limited to) on base percentage, runs scored, homeruns, total bases, walks, and slugging percentage. None of these things surprises me at all.
A couple of surprises in the AL Central: Detroit is still on fire, just a half a game behind the Sox. What’s almost as surprising is the way Minnesota has been playing, as they’re a full 8 games back from the 1st-place White Sox.
Random stats: Three NL teams and one AL team have yet to crack double digits in numbers of wins.
Upcoming milestone: Elmer Dessens of the Royals needs just 6.2 IP to reach 1000. I say, they may as well just pitch him in whatever situation, because the team is statisically not likely to be in any kind of position to ever win again. :(
P.S. The Royals lost again tonight. GRRRRRRRRRR.
P.P.S. They are also using their 3rd-string center fielder, as BOTH David DeJesus and the refreshingly impressive Shane Costa are on the 15-day DL with left hamstring strains :'(
