A Few Notes on Brett Gardner

With his new contract, Brett Gardner will reach a total of nearly $60 million in baseball earnings through next year, when he turns 36.

A leadoff man most of his career, he has struck out almost twice as much as he has walked, averaging 67 free passes and 120 whiffs per 162-game season with a slash line of 261/ .344/ .390. .735.

He is, as well, one of the worst all-time performers in the postseason, considering his number of opportunities.

In 52 games and 146 plate appearances, he has hit just .202/ .239/ .248/ .507,  with 1 homer, 3 doubles, 10 walks, and 33 strikeouts.

Wow. That's horrible for anyone much less a left fielder and that's with his traditional dropoff after the all star break. I'll bet his second half numbers are closer to his post season ones

Actually, with his 2 million buyout and 7.5 million salary, he will have made just slightly over 72 million in his career.

But at least he might win his second gold glove this week. See, every cloud has a silver lining, LOL.
