9/13 The Lake effect

On Thursday, Cubs outfielder Junior Lake played the 50th game of his career and extended his hitting streak to nine games, which matches his career high, also done Aug. 18-26. This is Lake’s fourth hitting streak of seven games or more.

The rookie outfielder is the only active Major Leaguer to begin his career with four separate, stand alone hitting streaks of seven games or more in his first 50 games. Two active players posted a similar feat to Lake. According to Elias, in 2001, Ichiro Suzuki began his career with a 23-game hitting streak and a 15-game hitting streak within his first 50 games, which amounts to five stretches of hitting in seven-straight games. In 2000, Juan Pierre began his career with a 16-game hitting streak and a 15-game hitting streak within his first 50 games, which amounts to four stretches of hitting in seven-straight games.

Let’s hope that “The Lake Effect” does not collide with “The Deer Effect”.

Is that the deer in the head lights approach at the plate?

Or, deer deer what can the matter be. Maybe a deer john to your batting avg..

Funny that White is talking flu shots, cause the thought of another season like the last two is making me sick.
I see the light, I just hope it is not a train.

Remember to get your “flu”shot this year! While you are at it, remember to get your “Deer” shot as well!
