I’ll most likely update the stats tomorrow, and thereafter the leader board, but I’ve been reminded by a couple of Cubs fans (and Voodoo Sabermetrics Council Members) that Felix Pie is finally in the show. We’ve been waiting for him, and I am excited to get him in the race.
And I also noticed that Alejandro De Aza is playing for the
Diamondbacks Marlins, and has not previously crossed the rookie threshhold, so we’re getting him on the leaderboard as well, primarily because I like his name. Alexi Casilla is up with Minnesota, but he started out 0-4, so I’m going to wait until he actually has stats before adding him. Many of the guys I was watching in Spring Training are getting their shots early this season, which is gratifying and adds a dimension to the season for me. I hope it does the same for you.
Perhaps tomorrow it will be time to meet another player – Akinori Iwamura is on deck.
