    Completely unrelated.

    How does Ryan Theriot have the 5th most hits in the NL since 2008??

      Hitting at or near the top of the order, not walking a whole lot except for one year, not getting hurt, and being a pretty decent singles hitter.

        It’s still shocking to me..

        Another completely unrelated question. If every player on your team had a WAR of 0, how many wins would your team have?

        • vtadave 4 years ago

          I’d take the under on 50. Pirates had a collective 9.5 WAR in 2010.

          • Ferrariman 4 years ago

            wow…Zack Grienke and Ben Zobrist had more individual season WAR in 2009 than the entire pirates team in 2010. That is stunning…

          • CaseyBlakeDeWitt 4 years ago

            Oh wow. That’s pathetic. McCutchen probably had at least 1/3 of it right? I’m not to sure how WAR works, I’m trying to figure it out.

          • CaseyBlakeDeWitt 4 years ago

            And I mean Daniel McCutchen of course. That Andrew guys just plain awful.

  2. Pat Borders! :O

    FTW!

  3. Pat Borders is still alive? He hasn’t even played since like ’06…. He’s like 46 years old right? Drafted in ’82.

    …..Diden’t Borders retire way back during WW2?

  5. What is the restricted list? Why was Pat Borders on the Dodgers restricted list? Why was he on it for so long? Why did they release him from it now? I need a lot of explanation here. Can someone please help me understand?

    • Players who fail to report to the team or who fail to sign an agreed-upon contract with the team. Players on this list do not count towards the Reserved List (40 man) or Active List (25 man) limits. Players on the restricted list do not receive pay, and may not sign with another team. A player may remain on this list for two consecutive years before he is removed – either activated or released. Often, placing a player on the Restricted List is akin to releasing him without fully relinquishing his rights. However, sometimes younger international signees can be placed on the Restricted List while they are finishing school.

        In short, the epitome of the McCourt regime’s brilliant accounting staff.

  6. Thanks Dylan! That is a good explanation. I’m now curious as to why Borders was even put on the list. He’s a lot older and was retirement age as it was when the Dodgers put him on the list originally. I wonder what happened with that and why the Dodgers even wanted to put him on the list originally.
