58: Percentage of Rick Ankiel plate appearances ending in a strikeout. He has 29 strikeouts and just one walk, and he fits right in on an Astros team striking out more than 10 times per game.
And he seems to have decided, like the boxer entering the final round losing on all scorecards, like the broke gambler down to a final bet, like the golfer facing the impossible shot but needing to pull it off to make the cut — that he might as well go for everything. Maybe, just maybe, if he can hit a noticeable number of homers — strikeouts, walks, singles, all of them be damned — he can keep this crazy career alive.
2.10: Joe Blanton's WHIP. Yikes.
.871: David Ortiz's slugging percentage in his first eight games back from the DL.
Joe Blanton's next 1-2-3 inning will be his first of the season.
Nobody has had a career with ISO>OBP.

Estalella is the only one with a OPS+ under 100.
10: Number of times Shin-Soo Choo has been plunked by a pitch, more than most teams. In the modern era, no player has been hit by more pitches in a single season than Ron Hunt (50, 1971). Choo could reach that record or land on the disabled list, whichever comes first.
8-unassisted: Double play turned by the Rays' Desmond Jennings against the A's on April 20, the first such DP in 10 years.
