This Just In: Vidro Is Slow

The good folks at USS Mariner are piling on, pulling out some quick numbers to agonizingly figure out how often Jose Vidro is going to hit into a double play this year.

Any Nat fan can tell you that the result isn't surprising.

Maybe they'd be "better" off playing him in the field and hoping he strains his meaty legs instead of saving his health at DH.

I wonder if there's ever been a second baseman in history to have as high a DPs-not-turned-on-defense / DPs-hit-into ratio? (At least since left-handed Roger Connor manned second base for the 1884 NY Gothams)
