It Could Be Worse Dep't: Chone Figgins' Horrible Start
In the comments of yesterday's Angels game recap, Maxwell mentioned the godawful baserunning being put on by Torii Hunter last year. That got me thinking about Chone Figgins and what a dreadful year he had last season, posting a season .259/.340/.306 line. This year's start is even worse: .150/.188/.250, though he did manage a home run against the Rangers earlier in the season. He's got a left thumb contusion that's sidelined him this week, but so far he hasn't hit the 15-day DL. For all that I've excoriated Tony Reagins, it looks like not re-signing Figgins was one of his better ideas.
