So, has Chone Figgins gone through a four-game stretch this year remotely as brutal as this postseason's 0-fer-16 w/ just one walk? Why yes, he did, from May 8-12, when he was 0-fer-14 w/ just one walk. What did he do in, oh, the 12 games immediately following? This:
That's 22 hits, 5 walks, 7 runs, 7 stolen bases, and a batting line of .396/.448/.491.
Yes, I realize that looking at him now he seems lost, bewildered, scared, weird. But then he always looks terrible when going through an offensive rut. It's strange for Figgins & most other good big league players to maintain such a low level of suckitude for much longer than he already has.
