Today's Fun Fact

As of this writing, there are 38 position players in the Major Leagues listed at a max of 6'0 and 180 pounds. Their average contact rate as a group is 85.8%, which makes sense, given that a little guy who doesn't put the ball in play is a little guy who doesn't produce. We should expect the ones selected for the big leagues to be able to make a lot of contact. Of those 38, however, Ronny Cedeno currently ranks last, at 74.5%. That little guy has been swinging out of his little shoes.

I remember one time I tried to pretend I was something I wasn't. Sparrows won't nest in just anything.
