*clap clap clapclapclap*
come on, didn't everyone see this coming? and now i'm in a toss-up to whether i want to see joe mauer in the playoffs or rick porcello. hmmm...
and because only one of my 5 will actually be playing in october, i might as well do a little stats monkeying for you right now.
ellsbury finished the season at .301 with 27 doubles, 10 triples, 8 homers and 70 stolen bases in 150 games . gotta love when stolen bases outnumber RBIs :)
alex finished with an average of .232, which isn't bad seeing as he only played 49 games. he had 6 each of doubles and home runs (2 of those homers being in the last two games).
salty ended up playing 89 games behind the plate with an average of .233, 12 doubles and 9 home runs.
lincecum went 15 and 7 with an ERA of 2.48 and 261 strikeouts, which is good for 2nd in the majors behind verlander (that one missed start killed him)
and finally, dan haren finished at 14 and 10 with a 3.14 ERA and 223 strikeouts.
and with that, on with the postseason!
