Wife Beatin' Wil Cordero Fun Fact O' The Day

The execrable Wil Cordero is now 'batting' .036 on the season. (Yes, it really is that low).

And now, thanks to another weak fly ball (his season-long specialty), which just happened to be timed with a runner on third and less than two outs, his on-base percentage is .034.

Think about that for a second.

His on-base percentage is lower than his batting average!

Thank you Wil! Just like Jimmy Carter made a meaningful contribution to economic theory by showing that it's possible to have both high unemployment and high inflation, Wil is making a meaningful contribution to sabermetrics!

Thanks Wil! Now try not to beat your wife.
