Two quick blunders from tonight’s DBacks-Rockies game:
(1) Arizona manager Bob Melvin puts reliever Doug Slaten into the game. Caray:
“Here’s Doug Slaten – he’s had a good amount of work this year.”
Doug Slaten threw 36.1 innings during the regular season, tied for 191st among relievers.
(2) Caray, after consecutive DBacks batters reach base:
“And here comes the underrated Diamondbacks offense!”
The DBacks were 26th in baseball in runs scored this season. So, if by “underrated” Caray means “rated under most offenses in baseball”, then yes, the DBacks offense is underrated.
