Bases Loaded and Tek Sucks

Ok, am getting beat up by posters at Talksox. Here is the thing, you start the game off and if Tek is batting 6 there is a good chance that he will come up with the bases loaded. What will happen? Well I say that Tek will make an out 4 out of five times. Just look at the numbers.

This year the captain is 2 for 11, 1 home run, 7 rbi, 1 BB, 1 SF, 1 GDP, for a .182 ba. For his career he is 27 of 113, 2 hr's, 77 rbi, 9 bb, 7 SF, 8 GDP, for a .239 BA. These are not numbers that will instill confindence in me about his ability to produce in the clutch. This is why I hate seeing him bat 5 or 6 in the lineup.

Numbers can be found here and here.
