Bill Chuck’s Believe It Or Not

  1. Alex Gonzalez has twice as many home runs this season as Ryan Howard (10 to 5).
  2. Jason Bay and Angel Pagan lead the Mets…in triples (with 3). Bay has just one homer.
  3. Tyler Clippard leads the majors in wins (7) and blown saves (5).
  4. Doug Fister has issued only six walks in 42 innings, has given up only one homer, and has a WHIP of 0.881. Yet in six starts, he’s only 2-1.
  5. Prince Fielder has hit four homers this season, yet has been hit by seven pitches.
  6. Nyjer Morgan has stolen eight bases this season, yet he has been caught seven times.
  7. The Blue Jays have more than double the number of doubles of the Astros (97-47).
  8. In five at bats with the bases loaded this season, David Wright has struck out four times. Then again Wright has struck out more than Mark Reynolds this season.
  9. In 131.2 innings with the Red Sox last year, Brad Penny induced nine ground balls hit into double plays. He has the same number of GIDP in 47.2 innings with the Cards this season.
