Staying in San Fran

The most underrated Catcher in Baseball resigns with the Giants

Over his three season stay in San Francisco, Giants catcher has performed better than people even realize. For some reason this guy gets kept out of great hitting catcher discussions every year. Here are his season stats for the last three seasons as a Giant…

.276 avg 19 hr 81 rbi

.292 avg 16 hr 95 rbi

.265 avg 20 hr 80 rbi

For those counting at home, that is a three season avg of… .278 avg 18 hr 85 rbi. Compare that to stud Braves backstop and perennial top 5 rated catcher Brian McCann… .284 avg 21 hr 91 rbi.

Bengie is creeping up in age but he can still produce and should be appreciated more than he is.

Pick of the Night

Giants -3 at Redskins

No one should bet on this game.  It is a complete toss up.  The Giants look good one week and put up points every way possible, and the next they score less than ten and look like a Rams or Buccaneers team.  The Redskins have made a second half surge in terms of quality of play even though the wins have not shown up like they had hoped.  Ever since Zorn was stripped of his play calling duties, the Redskins have been a respectable team and have gone down to the wire to the best of teams including the Saints.  With such an unpredictable game to try to predict I am going with the Skins at home to take care of the Giants getting 3 points.

Skins over Gmen – Scuttlebutt Record – (9-9)
Last pick, Colts -3 over Jaguars, resulted in a Win with the Colts winning a close one 35-31
