The Dord of Darien

Musings from the Mayor of the Internet

Come on

The two toughest outs in this lineup are Polanco and Ruiz.

So sayeth the Giants’ announcers. But we know better.

Carlos Ruiz’s 2010 OBP: .400. That’s really good. He actually is the toughest out in the Phillies’ lineup!

But Placido Polanco? .339. The following gentlemen are all tougher outs than Placido Polanco:

Jayson Werth (.388)
Chase Utley (.387)
Ryan Howard (.353)
Raul Ibanez (.347)

Good work, announcers! Placido Polanco is the sixth-toughest out in the Phillies lineup. Only Victorino and Rollins are easier to get out.

So maybe they just meant "in the NLCS?"

Placido Polanco: .350

Jayson Werth: .400
Ryan Howard: .400
Carlos Ruiz: .386

And just for fun:

Roy Halladay: .333
Roy Oswalt: .333

So I guess maybe you can just say whatever you want and not worry about checking your facts.
