Why doesn't anyone spell his name right? Mike McKenry, Mike McKenry, Mike McKenry!!! He hit a game-winning homerun on Friday. He filled a serious hole at a minimal cost. He's been one of the delightful suprises in this most delightfully surprising season... get his name right!!!!
Sure, he strikes out every 5th at-bat, has only taken 2 walks in 70 PA's, and is below league average in range factor... but he does have a 0.2 dWAR in 20 games. This is the exact same number as all star starter Alex Avila, but with 214 fewer PA's; and is better than all but 4 Pirates. He's a better option right now than Eric Fryer, Dusty Brown, or Wyatt Toregas; and has filled in admirably when pushed into PT because of injuries to Snyder, Doumit, and Jaramillo... show the man some love!!
This is all said tongue-in-cheek, but seriously... spell Mike McKenry's name correctly!!!
