.344, .381, .500, .438!!! Those are the batting averages of our bench players so far this season. INSANE! Excuse me for my enthusiasm but that is just freakish, and the incredible thing about that is that Xavier Paul hit a pinch home run in today’s game, currently rain delayed in top of the ninth.
Speaking of rain delays, my wife commented when passing by my laptop and seeing the torrential downpour going on at the game, “why don’t the Marlins have a roof?” Even someone that does not know that a foul ball is counted as a strike (with less than 2 strikes) can understand that a baseball team in Florida needs a roof! Oh well, all 1000 fans in attendance tonight had to scurry for cover.
How many games do you think our bench will win us this season?
