of his plays. Indeed if he fields the ball or throws the ball when there is no chance to get a runner out, he can only lower his fielding average by making an error. He cannot raise it. But there’s a silver lining in all of this. Every time a major-league pitcher gives up a grand slam you can proudly say, “I’m just as good as he is. ” And indeed you would be. You’d probably uncork a wild pitch and walk the next batter, but the point is you’d be letting only one run in as opposed to four. And just how many pitchers in Major League Baseball can say they could save their team three runs. Time to sit by that phone and wait for those big contract offers.- Paul R. De Lancey, philosopher
