TBS just followed up the National League Wild Card play-in game with an old episode of Sex in the City. That’s really showing an awareness of the target audience who I’m sure wouldn’t want to watch Family Guy or anything like that. I’m sure their ratings plummeted after that thrilling conclusion to the game.
And, please, enough about Austin Jackson. The guy hit .285 with nine homers in Double-A ball – hardly superstar-in-the-making numbers.
Nevermind that straight batting average is a terrible, terrible number on which to base any kind of projection. We’ll go with this, though: One Bernabe Figueroa Williams hit .281 with 8 home runs in his age-21 season at Double-A. Feel free to test out your scouting skills with another player, Bill.
If you dig deep enough, you can find the New York Yankees 2007 AL East Division Champions Authentic Collection T-Shirt on the MLB.com shop. In a few weeks, a bunch of needy children in third-world countries will be enjoying those t-shirts while we’ll have to buy these instead.
