  1. I am a Rays and Marlins fan, but the 2011 Texas Rangers have been the most fun team to watch so far. I cannot get enough of them.

  2. Maybe he’ll hit well enough this year to win a gold glove.

  3. AHEM

    What about Reggie Willits?

  4. Fantastic post

  5. Just perusing data from B-R, but it looks like, on the surface, none of those players with similar streaks were nearly as young as Elvis during their run.

  6. Can we factor in that anyone can hit a HR in texas?

  7. Sounds like a title of a kid’s book.

  8. Other than the HR, does anyone know if the XBH were true gappers or stretched singles?

    Not a cheapie. 390 feet that close to the line is out anywhere.

  10. One double was maybe a bad angle to a ball, but he has been ripping the ball.

  11. When I saw the headline, I expected the story to read like “Curious George Goes To School.”

  12. “The longest anyone has gone without a home run since 1993 is 328 games. ”

    I’m assuming that this applies to players who were regular starters? Reading this, I immediately thought of Rafael Belliard, who hit two home runs in his career 10 years apart. Without taking the time to nail down the number precisely, he had over 1800 plate appearances between the two home runs.

  13. Nice…

  14. “We know ISO doesn’t really even stabilize over a full season, so Andrus could return to swinging the light stick as soon as tomorrow.”

    And you just assume his ’10 was the norm, as opposed to the .100+ ISO he displayed in ’09?

  17. thanks!

  18. Year of the Pitcher, immediately followed by 1987 Redux, immediately followed by episodes of ALF and NIght Court.

  19. Is that really a requirement? Last year’s AL Gold Glove shortstop was more of a no-hit, no-glove type.

    Comment by Tommy — April 5, 2011 @ 3:53 pm

  20. He’s on the list, fourth on the list, 250 games.

    Comment by Eno Sarris — April 5, 2011 @ 3:57 pm

  21. Belliard is ninth on the list, 225 games, but the 1993 cut off hurt him, since his streak started in 1987. Good memory.

    Comment by Eno Sarris — April 5, 2011 @ 3:59 pm

  22. Well he never had an ISO above .100 in the minors… but I think ‘could’ leaves the door open either way.

    Comment by Eno Sarris — April 5, 2011 @ 4:00 pm

  23. Did ALF ever appear on NC or were they different networks?

    Comment by neuter_your_dogma — April 5, 2011 @ 5:02 pm

  24. He could return to his 2010 power production, or he could also be growing in to some of his projected potential pop.

    I mean, he’s 22. Developing power shouldn’t be out of the question.

    Not that I think he’s going to keep getting an XBH every game, but I think the right answer is somewhere between fluke and development.

  25. Yep. Ellsbury might have taken a better route, but that one also appeared to be hit a little deeper in the right-center hole than Andrus’s typical opposite field fliner last year.

  26. comment of the year!!!!

    Comment by Anthony — April 5, 2011 @ 10:58 pm

  27. Ryan Theriot? He has got to be on that list.

    Comment by Kyle — April 6, 2011 @ 2:37 am

  28. “projected potential pop”

    Nice unintentional illiteration.

    Comment by Matt — April 6, 2011 @ 11:05 am

  29. From my vantage point, three rows above the on-deck circle, he does look like he has put on a little bit of weight this year, particularly in the hips and butt…not that I was looking…not that there would be any problem with it if I was looking…anyway, yeah, he’s got a little bit of power potential.

  30. Thank you, but it was intentional. :)

    Comment by philkid3 — April 6, 2011 @ 8:38 pm

  31. Theriot actually hits a few homers a year.
