The Bad Day At The Plate Report

by Bill Chuck on September 19, 2013

There is no schadenfreude intended in this report, but the reality is that players do have 0-5 (and worse) games and yesterday there were a boat load.

Interestingly, 10 of the 14 players who had these bad games ended up on the winning team.

The Bottom 10

Players with the most 0-5 (and worse) games in 2013

This is definitely feeling like schadenfreude. But, you should note that Washington’s Denard Span, who’s on this list, extended his hitting streak last night to 29 straight, the longest in the majors this season.
