Happy anniversary, Yuni July 28, 2008

Posted by Brad in news.

Tonight’s game against the Rangers marks the third anniversary of Yuniesky Betancourt’s debut with the Mariners.  On July 28th, 2005, Yuni tripled against the Indians.  Since then, Yuni’s scored 200 runs for the M’s, walked 49 times, earned three intentional walks, and provided countless exciting moments for me and other fans.  He’s also committed 62 errors, grounded into 34 double plays (a third of those are from 2008 alone), and had his range shrink like a violet  (violets, being stationary, have absolutely no range).

He’s been a bit too frustrating this year (his OPS+ is a career low), but Yuni’s still an exciting young player, that I usually enjoy watching.  I hope he lasts at least another three years with the M’s.

Go get ’em, Rikimbili!
