Chasing Mendoza 2012

Besides the 12-0 shellacking, Sunday's ill-fated game against the Astros also marked a first for the Dodgers: it was the first day that Dee Gordon AND James Loney both had batting averages which exceeded that of Juan "Concrete Boots" Uribe:

Total days over .200 this year:

  • Uribe: 13
  • Gordon: 12
  • Loney: 2

As all three starters continue to vacillate around the Mendoza line, we will keep you posted here at SoSG.

More on Loney, from the LAT's Jim Peltz:

"I feel fine" at bat, Loney said. "I'm not really too concerned with numbers all the time. It's more of how I'm hitting the ball and how my timing is."

Loney also started poorly last year, batting .170 in his first 24 games. He hit .314 with 11 home runs the rest of the season.

I bet Sax does a lot of vacillating.

Greg Hao said...

That's some fine excel work there y'all.

MR.F said...

Also my first thought, Greg Hao.

Dusty Baker said...

Sax's palms are hairy from all that vacillating.

If you vacillate too much, you'll either go blind or you won't.

Greg Hao said...

An Angel dies every time you vacillate. And not the shitty kind down the 5 fwy.

Hideo Nomo said...

I dunno Greg, Pujols seems pretty dead to me.

Cliff Beefpile said...

I vacillate in the shower...more than I care to admit.

Steve Sax said...

Get your minds out of the gutter, people!

With all that talk about vacillating, one would think you all are vacillating fans.

A vacillate a day keeps the doctor away.

lol@hideo. True enough.
