Something short to lead into tonight's wrap-around finale.
Nats Pitchers at the dish this year have 7 hits in 63 ABs, good for a .111 Batting Average. And in addition to those 7 hits, our pitchers have racked up 2 Runs, 6 RBI, and 3 BB.
Those players that Jim Riggleman choose to hit for said pitchers have 1 hit in 27 ABs, good for a .037 Batting Average. With that 1 hit, they have 2 Runs, 0 RBIs, and 10 BB.
A modest proposal - take the bat off of your shoulder or let the pitchers hit.
