Line of the Day: Ronnie Belliard

With Bob and Mike on vacation, I thought about giving this to Ollie Perez today, just to see how much I could piss them off. Then I looked at that 6 in the walk column, and moved on to ...

Ronnie Belliard: 3-for-4, 2 HR, 2 R, 5 RBI

Look, I know: he's Ronnie Belliard, and his .226 BA puts him below the Jacquee line. (I feel a great disturbance in the force, like the screams of the 4 people who got that joke.) But he's 2B eligible, and he's got 9 HR in 155 AB.

If your team BA is bulletproof (or if you use OBP instead, where his .330 is bad but not wretched), you could do worse for that middle infield spot.
