Too Much Craziness For One Post

So I’ll just throw this up there and let you guys post your reactions about the game as a whole in the comments. We’ll have more tomorrow, but for now:

Mike Napoli vs LHP, career: .294/.400/.555
Mike Napoli vs RHP, career: .253/.343/.498

Mark Rzepczynski vs LHB, career: .205/.289/.284
Mark Rzepczynski vs RHB, career: .266/.357/.427

LI of Napoli vs Rzepczynski: 4.13

I just have no idea how you can let that match-up happen.

McCarver made the point of saying Rzepczynski struck out the 3 righties he’s faced so far in this series, but I am in complete agreement with Dave.

Flaws. Besides SSS, those three righties were Torrealba, Gentry, and German – I can’t think of anything they have in common with Napoli besides handedness.

j walter – there you go underestimating handsomeness. typical moneyball guy. smh. that particular variable is really hard to quantify and best left to the McCarvers and TLRs of the world.

yikes, j walter said “handedness” and not “handsomeness.” Complete reading comprehension fail on my part. sorry, all, and thanks for not nailing my arse to the wall over it.
