Church Of The Absurd

Small sample size alert: Ryan Church, the guy that can’t hit lefties, is currently hitting .333 against lefthanders this season with an OPS of 1.262. after his dinger against young stud Andrew Miller helped the Mets to a 13-0 victory last night. It only signifies that this regression to the mean is going to feel something like trying to quit heroin cold turkey (not that I would know anything about that. Caffeine? Maybe.)

Small sample size is quite the understatement. Angel Pagan is also a .400 hitter right now with a 1.100 OPS and 198 OPS+

In a small sample size world I have no problem exclaiming: Lastings who?

I would like to leave a comment saying what a great guy Church seems to be, but I am afraid that the commenter who goes by the name "g w bush" will pounce all over me and leave links to three articles proving that during the offseason Ryan waterboards detainees at Guantanamo.

That guy should have his own blog.

In other news, Hampton goes on the 15-day DL minutes before his first start since 2005 with "chest muscle pains".
They should name an award after this guy and give it to Carl Pavano!

I always told John I liked this guy! Every time he gets on t.v. John goes "Your boyfriends on" and low and behold Ryan comes on a smacks the ball around...I could consider polygamy if it helps the Mets win you know.
