Nine to Know: Zeros

  1. The Blue Jays have one win in nine games maybe they should try something different – Toronto is the only team in the majors with zero steals (and they’ve only been caught once).
  2. Here’s another suggestion to the Toronto pitchers: get your team fired up – the Blue Jays staff is the only team in the majors with zero hit batsmen.
  3. The Cardinals are a very un-Cardinal like 3-6 to start the season and they are the only team in the majors with zero saves.
  4. Phillies pitchers have walked 38 batters but they are the only staff in the majors with zero wild pitches.
  5. The Giants, Yankees, and Rangers are the last three teams to have not tried the “high four” – they have offered zero intentional passes.
  6. Whatever the Twins are doing, they should just keep doing it – Minnesota has been successful in six steals attempts, they are the only team in the majors with zero caught stealings.
  7. What is the deal with Dustin Pedroia? (That should have been read with a Jerry Seinfeld voice in your head) – So far this season, Pedroia has 10 hits and zero extra base knocks.
  8. On the other hand, Carlos Gomez has two doubles and three homers and Taylor Motter has four doubles and one homer and they each have zero singles.
  9. Then there are Ben Zobrist and Leonys Martin who each have 10 AB with runners in scoring position with zero hits. Leonys also has zero RBI.
