Top 5 Durham Bulls — On Base Percentage

(click on chart for larger view)

I really don’t want to say anything about last night’s 13-inning game. I missed the radio broadcast and, after taking a look at the wrap and Adam Sobsey’s story, I’m glad that I did. One item did catch my eye, Matt Joyce got tossed for arguing balls and strikes. That’s the second time this season (that I’ve noticed). Hope that isn’t a sign of things to come. Montoyo usually makes a player sit out a game after getting thrown out. We’ll see about that tonight.

In the meantime, here’s the next in my series of Top 5 Bulls. No real surprises at the top of the list, but I didn’t realize that Matt Joyce and Rhyne Hughes were doing so well. Pleased to see that. If you don’t get on base, you can’t score a run.

In the unlikely event that there is any continued interest in these last two marathons, here is the take on the games by the local newspaper here, and here.

Sometimes the lack of short-term memory is a good thing. We split the series. On to Indianapolis, just up the road from Louisville, so not a long ride on the bus.
