Red Sox All-Star Game Stats Wednesday, July 16, 2008

Just for fun, let’s post the combined stats of the Red Sox who took a massive 7 of the 33 total roster positions on the AL Squad.

Manny – 0 for 2, 1 k

Youklis – 0 for 2, 1 k

Pedroia – 0 for 1, 1 bb

Ortiz – injured

Varitek – defensive substitute for 2, yes 2 innings (will somebody please tell me how a guy with stats worse than Richie even MADE the all star team??)

Drew – 2 for 4, 2 rbi, AL MVP

Papelbon – 1 inning, 1 hit, 1 unearned run, 2 k’s

So, just because it skews things nicely, and I’m not a huge Sox fan, let’s total these numbers and let statistics ring their beautiful bias, shall we?

The Boston Red Sox, as representatives of nearly ONE QUARTER of the AL All Star Team:

.222, 2 bb, 3 k’s, 2 rbi, an MVP Award, Papelbon’s surrendering of a run in the 8th that almost won the NL the game, 2 innings of no error defense at the plate, a cripple in Ortiz and a partridge in a pair tree! Go Sox!

And just to make things fair (or for the curious), here are the stats for the 2001 M’s, who had 8 All Stars that year:

.167, 1 SB, 2 k’s and 3.0 IP, 2 k’s, 1 bb, 1 win, oh and the save also, thanks to Kaz.

Just goes to show you that even the best sometimes fall…, so here’s to the Red Sox and their 116 wins this year!! Huh? Not that many? Oh. Well, at least they’ll make the playoffs! What? Oh, it’s not a wrap, is it… Hmm…

Well, then you suck, Red Sox.

Love,

A delusional Mariner fan
