I post, without comment, John Levesque's P-I column on the "blossoming" of Willie Bloomquist.

Who is hitting .257, with an OBP of .289 and a SLG of .331, below his pathetic career numbers.

Statheads get asked all the time if we "actually watch the game," but here we have a man whose job it is to watch the games, and who "sees" Willie Bloomquist as a positive asset when he plays more often!! Is it so valuable to watch the game that basic thinking skills are rejected?

After all, did you notice that Levesque not only criticized Ichiro! and praised Bloomquist in this piece, but that he also admitted that Willie sucks at hitting for power AND hitting for average, but then ignores those apparently "minor" weaknesses to praise his baserunning skill.

I'm the first to agree that Bloomquist is an accomplished baserunner, which suits him for one job in the major leagues: professional pinch runner.

Perhaps Levesque should STOP watching the games.
