It occurred to me recently that the World Series might end soon, and I seriously need to hurry the hell up before all the next season’s projections start getting into the past tense super-hard. There’s still no way I don’t fulfill my promise to review EVERY PLAYER (perhaps best evidenced by the fact I’m writing a De Aza review right now), but the fact that I’m going about so slowly that I’m missing legitimately amusing stories like a rumored Ozzie Guillen (probably worthless) for Mike Stanton (ohmygoshsogood) trade, is getting to me.
I don’t mean to be a super tease about doing a Quentin wrap-up, but it’s very late, J.J. of White Sox Examiner has his Quentin piece up right now, and you really don’t want me to write a Quentin article without getting a boatload of quotes from my sister first. You really don’t.
Sure, all this unrrelated rambling might seem to indicate that a wrap-up for De Aza is as meaningless for me as it is for you, but you won’t be so smug when one our starting outfielders trips on a sprinkler head during warm-ups next season and Alejandro winds up making 80 starts, now will you?
Stat line: .300 BA, .323 OBP, .400 SLG, .723 OPS, 30 AB, 3 2B, 0 HR, 2 RBI, 7 R, 1 BB (3.1%), 4 SO (13.3%), 2 SB (66.7%), .318 wOBA, -0.8 UZR, 0.0 WAR
What did we expect?: Have we beaten the “Fegan didn’t know jack about the Sox farm system beyond the top 4 prospects coming into the season” theme into the ground yet? No? Fine.
