Cubs 2012 Unsung Hero

By bullpenbrian at 10.10.2012 2 comments.

-David DeJesus: .262/.350/.403, .753 OPS.

All-around professional, quality at-bats, terrific defense, durable, team leader.

He’s been the Cubs’ best leadoff man since Juan Pierre in 2006 while leading the team in OBP (.350), finished second in triples (8), third in doubles (28) and fourth in hits (133).

There’s not a better player for the youthful Cubs players to look up to than DeJesus. He plays the game the right way–every day. It’s a blessing the 33-year-old returns for a second season on the North Side, even if he only lasts to the July 31 trade deadline next year.

Honorable mention: Shawn Camp (3-6, 3.59), 77.2 IP, 1.29 WHIP and tied for league lead with 80 appearances.

  1. I don’t know what to think because I’m still bothered by the umpires, who I believe helped the Redbirds. I’m sick with the results.

      I’m confident you and I are not the only ones sickened after Saturday night…in fact, I’m just disgusted by the outcomes of the Yankees & Cardinals winning both their elimination games.

      However, I’m not one to point the finger at the umpires…if we’re going to cast blame, and there’s plenty to go around, we can start with the Orioles’ ‘Swing or Bust’ plate approach and Davey Johnson’s questionable bullpen moves while his relievers who were summoned for action played right into the strength of the Cards’ hitters. Just awful.

      So where do we go from here? Anything but a Yankees and Cardinals World Series, I hope :S
