26 year old Jerry Owens has pretty much been Chicago's everyday center fielder since the beginning of June. In 48 games he's batting .243/.286/.281, with a 49 OPS+. For the sake of comparison, Horacio Ramirez has an ERA+ of 60. Owens has been 18% worse than the worst starting pitcher any of us has ever seen. If we lose this series, I think we know exactly who's going to be responsible.
LET'S GO MARINERS!!
