I have zero time for a game recap, so here's the chart:
Biggest Contribution: Julio Mateo, +9.6%
Biggest Suckfest: Aaron Sele, -17.9%
Most Important Hit: Bloomquist single, +16.7%
Most Important Pitch: Fasano homer, -15.4%
Total Contribution by Pitcher(s): -11.3%
Total Contribution by Hitters: -48.7%
Scott Spiezio is still stuck at one hit on the year. One. In 22 plate appearances. And he hurt himself running it out. He's been a .207/.283/.334 hitter since signing with Seattle two winters ago. So, naturally, Mike Hargrove elected to go with Spiezio against a righty in the eighth inning tonight, instead of Chris Snelling, who's actually worth several damns. Words fail me.
You write the recap. Anyone have an explanation for this decision? Any at all?
