I’m feeling very reflective on this fantastic Saturday. The nothing beats a little nice weather while you enjoy a ballgame. It gives me time to pause and ponder the mysteries of life. Where do we come from and why are we here? Is there really life on other planets?
How bad a pitcher IS Tim Redding?
Ah… the one question I can answer. Surprisingly enough, he’s pretty terrible.. How bad you ask?
Well, let’s stroll down the patient’s chart…
- In eight years, Redding has been on five teams
- He’s won LESS THAN 5 GAMES in all but three seasons. (One of those seasons, he won 5 games)
- Maybe he was in the pen you ask? Well, he has a career save total of zero. His holds are at an impressive zero number as well. Not much time in the pen.
- In 129 games started, he’s lasted 9 innings once.
- He gives up 9.8 hits per 9 innings as a career average
- He had once single start for the Yankees in 2005 and lasted 1 inning (6ER)
- He has a career.351 OBP against
- He is 5’11 and weighs a hefty 230 pounds. I’m personally 6 foot tall and know I need a diet when I reach 185.
- Number 8 hitters are batting .256 off him in his career with an OBP of .396
- He has walked the #8 hitter 7 more times in his career than anyone else in the lineup.
- Tim Redding makes $2,250,000. Wow. If I made that much I’d eat a lot too.
The Mets b-team got smacked around today by the Marlins and their ace. It’s not all bad as you need to lose sometime and their ace is a serious pitcher (He’ll be a Met, Red Sox or Yankee in no time). Today is really all about Tim Redding and how impossibly bad he is. I mean…. he’s REALLY bad.
Two other game notes:
- Fernando Martinez got his first hit and ran like his life depend on it all day. I think the kid got the message…
- Carlos Beltran left the game with the shits.
Really that’s all she wrote… tomorrow will be better because Tim Redding can’t throw.
