In response to Bill-806's comment:
0 for 3 last night and a tough game the night before..... Now @ 308 ??? Do we have a health problem here ?????
Actually, funny that Bill put this up because when Ortiz was trying to score from second and was tagged out a few games ago, Eck mentioned that david was running funny and implied there was a problem.
Well this is Ortiz's fading to the end of the season that bill has been implying.
In September with six games remaing, Ortiz has:
-- Five home runs, which is a 30-HR pace for per/month production. It's his third-best month (so far) and that's with at least 25 fewer plate appearances from the top two months.
-- 16 RBIs, which is a 96-RBI pace and again, that's with six games left. It's his third-best month (so far) and again, that's with 25 fewer plate appearances from the top two months.
-- He has scored 18 runs (108-run pace), which is THE MOST of any month this year. Gee -- how does he ever manage to score those runs since according to bill, he can't run.
-- He has nine doubles (54-doubles pace), which is THE MOST of any month this year.
-- In his fade to the finish, he has a .592 slugging percentage and a .977 OPS. And some of you wonder why bill gets mocked when he posts that Ortiz went 0-for-3.
