Well, about the Higgy coincidence:

Higgy: 97ABs, .196BA, 11BBs, 31Ks, 6HRs, 12RBIs, .711 OPS
Gary: 230ABs, .217BA, 35BBs, 73Ks, 15HRs, 35RBIs, .785 OPS

I would say, if all things were equal, they would be more or less equal.

Yet, it surprised me that Kyle doesn't walk as much as Gary, yet their Ks are about even.

As for the pitching thing, I suspect it may have more to do with a language barrier; their fielding percentages are nearly equal. The PB/WP numbers are pretty equal, though why they put the PB numbers on a catchers resume is beyond me.

Meh, when all is said and done, I don't really care one way or the other except to say that when Gary gets hot, he's scary. When he's not, he's higgy.

Would Higgy put up similar numbers to Gary if they had an equal number of at-bats? That, I think, is the real question. I may catch all kinds of hell for this, but what a catcher does behind the plate, to my mind, is overrated.

Dick, nothing bugs me more than "framing." What an overrated supposed skill. I keep an eye on what catchers do when the ball hits their glove, and the times an ump is fooled into calling a ball a strike are almost nil. Had to be a catcher who started hyping that. Maybe it was McCarver when he was doing games on TV.

I am very touched by this JM.

I will leave you with the sage words of the great 13bit: Fuck everybody. I love you all.

I won $29,000,000 in the power ball lottery, I took advice from a person who talked about this great spell caster called Dr. OKOYE. The person placed a testimonies on a blog saying how Dr. OKOYE helped him win the lottery by sending him the winning number. I was curious and I thought it was all a joke not until I contacted this spell caster to know for myself how this works cause I have spent a lot buying tickets and I never win. I contacted he and him told me the necessary thing that need to be done and i did it and his told me to wait for 3 days and truly he gave me the winning numbers to play the lottery which i did, Can you believe my name was the first winner that is how i won {$29,000,000} Contact him on or Whatsapp +2348109476757 Dr OKOYE is the only answer to that your problem of winning the lottery
